The sixteen examples of this group all have a rounded shoulder, either Loeschcke form VI a (6 ex.), form VI b (7 ex.), form VII a (2 ex.), or form VII b (1 ex.) (see fig. 2). Only one, cat. 221, has a handle. Fourteen have a flat base marked off by a circular groove, two have a base-ring. The discus decors are related to mythology (7 ex.); theater and circus (3 ex.); animals (2 ex.); symplegma (1 ex.); one is a rosette, another a bust of Hadrian, and one has two gladiators. The workshop marks are: three plain single planta pedis, one double PVF//PVF, and two illegible ones; one letter T in relief; one name: GABINIA, and three tria nomina: two COPPIRES and one CCLOSVC.
Bailey dates his group iii to the Late Tiberian to Early Trajanic period. We think Late Tiberian is a bit too early in several cases—for example, cat. 213—and therefore the chronology may sometimes be extended. Such is certainly the case with cat. 211, decorated with Hadrian’s bust (see discussion in the introduction to type B, before cat. 161), and for cat. 214 signed GABINIA, cat. 215 signed CCLOSVC, and cat. 220 signed COPPIRES; for these we suggest a date from Late Flavian to Antonine.
