of vitreous paste resemble them in size, but are without ornament and of different colours—black, white, yellow and blue. Figure 50
Probably the game resembled draughts, and was played on a board divided into squares by lines drawn at right angles. Such a board has recently been recovered at Corbridge, in the shape of a slab of stone having 56 squares roughly incised on it (Fig. 50). A bone die, indicating a game of chance rather than of skill, (Plate XCIII., Fig. 3) was found in Pit LVII, the Well at the Baths. It is 58 of an inch wide by 38 of an inch deep, and the points, which run from one to six, are marked by incised circles with a hole in the centre. Perhaps it is also to a game that we should refer the circular pieces formed from the bottoms of vessels from which the sides have been carefully chipped. Many of these came from the pits, and they frequently have the appearance of being worn by rubbing on a stone. Similar pieces are common at the Saalburg. More than once discs neatly fashioned from red sandstone were found along with the chipped jar bottoms; one of these is illustrated in Plate LXXXIII. (Fig. 5). These also were probably used to beguile the tedium of garrison life in Caledonia.
