several bones of oxen on which were written fourth century accounts.
Among the miscellaneous small antiquities"of the second or third century
are a bronze statuette of Isis-Selene, a bronze head of Apollo, a bronze
sistrum, several faience bowls, and some specimens of fused mosaic glass
(rosettes, flowers, fish, &c), two gems (Hercules slaying the Hydra, and an
