The fabric is described as `Ton braun,
mit kleinen Steinchen gemagert.
Perhaps these `small stones'
and this jar may be in TF1.
Wells (1972, 87-89)
suggests that the site was occupied by a small fort
rather than a fortress,
perhaps founded before the end of the first century BC.

stamps catalogued in
(Oxe, Comfort & Kenrick 2000), seven are from Lyon
