In 1848 this beautifully decorated pot was discovered in a Roman grave at West Lodge in Colchester.

It dates from around AD 175 and was probably made in Colchester.

Four gladiators can be seen on the base. Above them are inscribed the names Secundus, Mario, Memnon and Valentinus.

It is one of the finest examples of ceramic art know from Roman Britain.
