Imbrex viewed from the antefix end
Numerous fragments of imbrices with integral antefixes
were found, including two complete examples found together adjacent
to the outside wall of the facade corridor, one of which is shown here.
The tiles are 320mm end to end and are made in a shell-tempered fabric
20mm thick. They are 145 mm wide externally and the height of the apex
of their parabolic profile being 82mm above the base line.
Of particular note are fragments which indicate that some of these tiles
may have been intended for use in a hip roof scheme. These have antefix
ends which are formed with an included 45 degree
angle like the triangular tegulae found
in close proximity.
Note the fingerprints on the right-hand edge of the lower image.
From the configuration, it is clear that the un-fired tile was carried
with the closed end towards the body of the tile-maker.
