Typology Cam 262
Description Loeschcke illustrates a small complete jar, then housed in Trier Museum, as a parallel for the moulded-rim jar sherds recovered from Haltern.

Hawkes and Hull cite as a parallel for Camulodunum type 262 a `small one in the same clay from Trier'. Although they give no further bibliographic or museum reference, the probability that this and the vessel published by Loeschcke are one and the same must be very high, and it is most likely that the Trier jar was in TF1. The vessel was not traceable in Trier in 1979.
