The exterior of P-2438B preserves a portion of the undecorated band below the rim (but no portion of rim remains) and a badly smudged ovolo band. The two fragments together show a decoration consisting of large, double-framed half-medallions at the top of the main zone, enclosing some decorative type, of which at present not enough is preserved to obtain an indentification; these half-medallions alternate with small double-framed medallions, located on a lower horizontal plane and containing birds. P-2438A shows that some of these smaller medallions are set higher than others, which lay close to the lower border of the main decorative zone; beneath the higher ones are conventionalized leaves; beneath the larger half-medallions are these same conventionalized leaves surmounting in addition two rosettes. However, P - 2438B shows the small medallions on the same horizontal plane, beneath which are rosette fillers and a different leaf pattern. The hole decoration is roughly divided into panels by twisted columns, unknown in Central Gaulish (Comfort) but common to East Gaulish. A smaller half-medallion or festoon fills the spandrel between the ovolo and the smaller, higher-set medallions. Comfort follows Oswald and proposes the potter Doecus of Lezoux (Antonine).

Central Gaulish (Samian Ware) Terra Sigillata body sherd from a decorated, open vessel, a bowl. Dragendorff Form 37, hemispherical bowl. Slane’s notecard reads: 1) To the left is a panel decoration with a bead row separating the two. Above is a man while below is a three petaled plant with hollow side leaves and a solid center stem. Slanes notes that this is used by DOECCUS and others. 2) There is a continuous winding scroll on the right. The stalks are attached to the stem by a rosette and the flower has a solid end with a series of lines between it and the stalk. The main stem of the scrolls is interrupted at the point of flexure by a double pattern of two short round beads and one long center bead. Slane notes this pattern is used by DOECCUS and CINNAMUS. The bead row has no terminals. There is no basal wreath. Slane suggests the potter is probably Doeccus.
