I. Surface Finds of Later Pottery

87. Bowl (Dragendorff 37). Found on the line of Barrack Block No. III. Praetentura. Height, 5¼ inches. Diameter, 9½ inches. Egg and tassel moulding. Decoration in large medallions and panels. A figure of Venus standing beside a column (Déchelette 184) occupies the centre of the medallions; on her right, an owl (Déchelette 1020); on her left a snake. To the left of the medallion, in a panel, figure of a dancer turned to right, holding a scarf (Déchelette 372 bis). On the left, figure of a bearded man (Déchelette 523). The remaining panel of the design is divided horizontally; upper half, figure of a bird (Déchelette 1038); lower half, figure of Cupid (Déchelette 236). In one panel the stamp of the maker, CINNAMI, retrograde, takes the place of a bearded man. (Plate XLIV.)

88. Fragment of a bowl (Dragendorff 37). Decoration with large scroll and leaves. On a label the stamp, incomplete, of Cinnamus, NNAMI. (Page 225, Fig. 4.)

89. Fragment of a bowl (Dragendorff 30). Egg and tassel moulding. In a large medallion, figure of a dancer (Déchelette 220). In the adjoining panel the remains of the letters CINNAMI. For a similar piece, see Der römische Limes in Oesterreich, Heft. iv. Fig. 5. (Page 225, Fig. 5.)

90. Fragment of a bowl (Dragendorff 37) found in excavating Building No. XVIII. In a volute framed by a leafy scroll, with birds, a horseman gallops to right, clad in a cuirass. A cloak floats from his shoulders; in his right hand he brandishes a lance (Déchelette 156); below him is the potter's stamp, CINNAMI, impressed retrograde) and lower still the figure of a stag galloping to right. (Page 225, Fig 7.) See also Nos. 69 and 82.

A portion of a bowl decorated with free figures and bearing the stamp of Cinnamus occurs at Camelon. Proc. Soc. Antiq. Scot. vol. xxxv. fig. 14. The stamp was noted several times at Bar Hill, and it also occurred at Rough Castle, while at Ardoch a portion of a bowl with a figure of Venus surrounded by a leafy scroll (Proc. Soc. Antiq. Scot. vol. xxxii. fig. 3) is probably by this potter. His work is common throughout France and England, but less so on the forts of the German Limes. He belongs to a period of great activity at Lezoux, but also to a time when the potteries on the Rhine had to some extent displaced the wares of the south. In Scotland we must associate his wares with the Antonine occupation.

91. Fragment of a bowl (Dragendorff 37). Egg and tassel moulding. The side of the bowl is covered with a lattice pattern of rope lines. In each diamond-shaped space, a rosette. The decoration is in the style employed by the potter Satto (see Knorr, Rottweil, Taf. xvii. 11); probably German. (Page 225, Fig. 8.)

92. Small fragment. A gladiator marching to combat, slight variant of Type Déchelette 586. Lezoux. (Page 225, Fig. 9.)
