A ROMAN CEMETERY AT WEST WICKHAM. By Norman Cook and Michael J. McCarthy continued

   8. Portions of a vessel of light grey ware with darker particles and with a soapy textured, light red surface, slightly pitted.
This group may be dated to the beginning of the second century by the presence of the Drag. 35-36 patera.

Group E.
This group was found south-east of Group A and consisted of
   9. A butt-shaped beaker of thin, sandy, light red ware, body ornamented with a band of rouletting between two girth grooves and below a cordon. The base is slightly hollow: For a history of this type see Bushe-Fox, Swarling Report, page 15, No. 34. Our specimen is not likely to be 

much later than 50 A.D.
   10. A small vase of Saint Remy ware. It has a fine white paste and a reddish brown slip. The neck and base are narrow, but the actual rim and foot ring are well turned. The body, which was made in a mould has a band of raised ornament above a cordon at the greatest diameter.
   This specimen may be compared with a small jug of the same fabric found at Bapchild, near Sittingbourne, published in the Antiquarie8 Journal, Vol. X, page 161. Like its associated pot, this vessel dates within a few years of the middle of the first century.
   Portions of several other pots were found with this group but they were so fragmentary that they have not been drawn.
