PAGE 311, line 19. There were discovered in 1775, in a field near Garlinge-green, belonging to the Rev. Mr. Thomson, in this parish, a leaden chest, two feet five inches long, eleven inches and a half broad, and 8 inches in depth. It lay about six inches beneath the surface of the ground. When opened it was found to contain two vessels and a patera, and nothing more; the smaller urn of the two was four inches high, holding about half a pint, made of a blackish brown earth, the ornaments and letters white, thus:

The larger urn was six inches high, holding about a quart, the colour and ornaments the same as the small one. The patera was small and shallow, made of course black earth. The smaller urn, with the word BIBE, was most probably a drinking cup. (See Beger's Thesau. Blandent, vol. 3, f. 462, where such another is described.) There can be no doubt but that the remains are Roman; but how they came to be thus deposited by themselves, that is without any human bones, ashes, medals, or the like, is very unaccountable. No further search was made than merely deepening the hole out of which the chest was taken. Nothing else was found.

It is not improbable, however, that this spot may have been a Roman burying ground, and the Tumuli levelled by a long course of tillage. The situation is a gently declining hill, and faces the N. E.
