CXLVIII. Skeleton with head to the east, the opposite direction to that of nearly all the others. A small circular fibula [KAS 398] about an inch in diameter, and of archaic pattern; the centre is a raised boss set with a green stone, and from this radiate ten sliced garnets, of nearly triangular shape; the back is plated with silver. A bronze buckle [KAS 352], one large ribbed bead, probably Roman, and a curiously-shaped bronze ornament [KAS 468], which has apparently been attached to a girdle or strap. From the position of the skeleton and the type of the relics, I am inclined to class this grave with No. LXXXV., as one of the earliest which we opened.
