Close up of Lyon ceramic pot and four jeweller's 'intaglios'. The ceramic pot was made in Lyon, France, and was found buried to protect the contents from the Boudica's attack. The pot was found with four ring 'intaglios' - seals, from a jeweller's shop. Two of these 'intaglios' depict the bust of Roma and a discus thrower. Another is made of onyx depicting clasped right hands for an engagement ring; the other one is made of banded agate depicting a winged horse - Pegasus.
