Abstract

A relief-patterned flue-tile recovered during the excavations of the forum-basilica at the Roman town of Calleva Atrebatum (Silchester) features a previously unpublished roller-stamped design. The tile is described in terms of its fabric and design and compared to the other roller-stamped examples from Silchester.
