Inventorium Sepulchrale, footnote, page 182: \This is one of the rarest kinds of Roman pottery we meet with its peculiar characteristic being incuse foliated ornaments very sharply and neatly cut. Two perfect varieties were found in the Roman cemetery of Neuville-le-Pollet near Dieppe; see the Abbe Cochet's Normandie Souterraine pl. 2 figs. 13 and 15. Fragments of similar vessels have also been found in London. The form of most if not all of the known examples appears to he the same as that of the Crundale specimen. The potter's mark upon fig. 1 is of common occurrence.\" - C.R.S."Mayer card: Roman urn said to be a rare type. 4 3/4 inch high.
