The urn with two handles is of an exceedingly rare & valuable type ..." asking him to "preserve the fragments of what I have no doubt you properly imagine to be a lachrymatory or unquentarium; one is generally found in Roman interments.

I notice in the Photograph a portion of an urn (pottery) that was also found ...", 4 sides 8vo., Leicestershire Architectural and Archaeological Society, Southfields, 18th March
