(Plate LI., Fig. 10). Both of these fragments are of a somewhat hard, buff material.

Type 46

The occurrence of Type 43, associated with the later types of Terra Sigillata, probably affords us an indication of the chronological position of a bowl found in Pit XXVIII, which lay to the south of the railway in the South Annexe. This pit, like Nos. XL, LXXXII, LXXXVIII and XCI, all containing late pottery, was a built well. In none of the wells lined with masonry was any early pottery observed. The bowl is illustrated in Plate XLVIII., Type 46, Plate L. (A), Fig. 1. It is made of fine, smooth, black ware. Height 438 inches, with a diameter of 6¼ inches at the mouth. The only decoration is a single line lightly incised round the body. The shape shows a relationship to some of the earlier pedestal urns of late Celtic origin. The material very closely resembles that of Type 43 the clay has the same micaceous character. In both, the footstand is neatly formed. The two are probably of the same period and the product of the same potteries. Similar bowls occur at Colchester.

Type 49

Of the later vessels coming under the heading of bowls the forms of most frequent occurrence are represented in Plate XLVIII., by Types 41, 42 and 49.

Type 49 (see also Plate L. (B), Fig. 6) is a shallow bowl of slatey-grey ware with overhanging rim, having a height of 238 inches and a diameter at the mouth of 978 inches. The surface of the vessel is smooth, while the exterior, including the bottom, is covered with a lattice-work pattern, the lines being drawn with a blunt point. The bowl was found in Pit XXXIX, with a dish of coarse black ware (Type 42) and a cup of fine Terra Sigillata (Type, Dragendorff 33) without maker's stamp. Many pieces of similar. vessels were caked with soot, and were no doubt used for culinary purposes.

As a rule, this type was absent from the pits containing early Terra Sigillata. On the other hand, it was found in Pits XLV, XLIX, LXX, LXXII, LXXXV and LXXXIX, and it was common in the inner ditch system of the West Annexe and in the inner ditch of the East Annexe, in all of which the fragments of pottery were of Antonine character.

The type, however, is perhaps not entirely late. One specimen came from near the bottom of the larger inner ditch of the later fort on the west front, and two small fragments from Pit LXIII. This, coupled with the fact that it occurred at Gellygaer, indicates that the dish had probably begun to make its appearance at least as early as the beginning of the
