The type also occurs at Corbridge, at Newstead it belongs to the second century.

Bowls. Type 43

Of the later vessels embraced under this heading, one of the most interesting is the bowl of black ware (Plate XLVIII., Type 43; also Plate XLIX. (B), Fig. 8). It stands 4 inches high and has an interior diameter of 5½ inches. The material is of fine texture, showing small particles of mica. In the interior, the marks of the potter's fingers. that moulded it as it turned on the wheel are very distinct. On the exterior, the surface seems to have been highly polished. The footstand too is neatly formed. The most interesting feature of the bowl, however, is that its whole outline suggests that it has been copied from a bowl of Terra Sigillata of Type Dragendorff 30. The moulded figures of the decorated original were, however, probably outside the craftsman's range, and in places the surfiice of the bowl is covered with a species of. ornament recalling the letter Z, rudely executed, impressed with a blunt point. The bowl was found in Pit LXXII, where it was associated with a number of fragments of late decorated bowls and the potters' stamps, CRACVNA F, RUFR MA and SVOBNI M. It should therefore be put down as belonging to the second century, and is. probably Antonine. Possibly it comes from the Upchurch potteries.

Type 44

Plate XLVIII., Type 44. The vessel here figured is, like the last specimen, obviously a copy from a bowl of Terra Sigillata. It stood 3½ inches high, and had a diameter of 6 inches. The material is somewhat soft in texture, of a strong yellow colour. The fragments, from which about half of the bowl could be put together, were found near the surface above Pit LXXXV, which contained late pottery. A small fragment of a similar bowl of the same material, illustrated in Plate LI., Fig. 13, was found just beneath the cobbling placed above Pit LVII at the Baths. It is plain that we have here, as in the last specimen, a dish the outline of which is taken from a bowl of Sigillata (Type Dragendorff 37), the lines of small vertical incisions on the surface taking the place of the moulded decoration which it was beyond the skill of the potter to reproduce. Two other fragments of vessels, evidently copied from Terra Sigillata, may be mentioned here. One has the everted outline of Type Dragendorff 29, while the surface is hatched for decoration (Plate LI., Fig. 8). The other has an overhanging rim, and is evidently a copy of a vessel in the style of Type Dragendorff 38
