medallion type of decoration, but also on those with wreaths. The stamp of this potter is found, though not at Newstead, on bowls with free decoration. A specimen occurs at Camelon. In addition to the pieces bearing his name, fragments showing his designs are common. Although the great majority of the bowls of CINNAMVS are of the hemispherical form, the cylindrical shape is occasionally met with. The potter DIVIXTVS appears to be a contemporary of CINNAMVS in Scotland, although Déchelette classes him as one of the chief potters of the second Lezoux period, dating from A.D. 80 to 110, while CINNAMVS is relegated to the succeeding period. In Scotland the wares of DIVIXTVS must have come north with the Antonine invasion. Here he appears as a maker of bowls with large medallions. The employment of Caryatidae is a feature of his style. His stamp occurs twice at Newstead—once in the inner ditches of the West Annexe, which must be post-Hadrianic, as a coin of Hadrian was found at the bottom of one of them. The stamp is imperfect, but the decoration of the fragment makes the identification certain. At Camelon the same stamp was found on a medallion vase, also with Caryatidae, and a similar example occurred at Birrens, where there do not appear to be any of the characteristic types of the first century. A good example in the style of this potter was found in the fort at Castlecary.[1] DIVIXTVS was a maker of cylindrical bowls as well as of the hemispherical shape, and in some examples of such bowls found in England hearing his stamp, a rather coarse reproduction of the patterns in vogue at the end of the first century may he noted. This may be seen in the well-preserved specimen of a cylindrical bowl, with metope decoration, preserved in the British Museum, as well as in a fragment of the same type recently discovered at Corbridge.[2] It is possible that these may belong to a somewhat earlier period of his output than the pieces found further north.

Sometimes in addition to the stamp of the potter, the dishes bore upon them the name of the owner or some simple mark of possession scratched with a knife-point. A few of the names so written are reproduced in Fig. 22. These, with the exception of No. 7, which was inscribed on a dish of coarse ware, were found upon platters of Terra Sigillata. No. 1, the name ATTO is on the earlier form (Dragendorff, Type 18), found in Pit LXXVI with early pottery. The others are scratched upon the later form (Type 31), and therefore probably all of them belong to the second century. No. 2 bears the name DOMITI; No. 3 cannot be deciphered with certainty, SIMVLIANI or
