(#003の続き)of the largest one is 200 mm. in height.(Fig.1，PI.IV).This peculiarity in form has never been met with in other deposits, and in most cases, the knobs are large and thick， and perforated with from two to six holes which communicate internally.This remrrkable conformation has not been met with in other parts of the empire, and seems to be peculiar to this deposit.In some the knob is simply a slight projection from the rim. ln others it forms a twisted loop. ln other it either projects outward，or internally from the inner surface of the rim. Still further，some rims are conical or notched or undulating.
The designs are various， but we may be able to classify them generally as foIlows:－asProf. Morse has described in the Omori Deposit， “ The designs are indifinitely varied ； generally areas partially or wholly enclosed by curved lines， the area within or without the lines being cord marked， the other area being smooth"(Omori Mounds Memoir p.8).ln others， the entire outer surface is cord marked tbough in some an area near the margin is left which is destitute of the cord marks. 0thers have deep pits or grooves incised， and in others still the surfhce is entirely destitute of the cord impressions， and others have a little area near the margin which is separated from the cord-marked area below.The cord marks which are impressed on the entire surface of potteries extend as far
as their margin. ln some cases， potteries are entirely destitute of cord marks.
The margins of the potteries are generally smooth and even， but in some cases they are deeply incised forming a sort of knobbed or undulating appearance.
The common ornamentation is either in curved， spiral， or parallel impresions or lines. ln many cases， lines cross each other regularly giving a reticulated appearance to the surface. The parallel lines are unevenly interriupted，or a number of parallel lines are interrupted by a zigzag line， or sometimes a number of zigzag lines are arranged one after the other in regular series.
The entire absence of legs or knobs for the support of the vessel shows in this respect a resemblance to the pottery of the Omori Deposits.
The inner surface of rims is， in some cases， marked with two or more
parallel grooves.(Fig. 12， PI.IX.,Fig.3，9，PI.VIII).
0ne hundred and eighty seven bases more or less broken were collected，of which four are marked with the matting impression, and six with irregular scratched lines， and the rest are smooth. The largest bottom thus far examined is about fourteen centimetres in diameter.
ln a few vessels the base is slightly larger in diameter than the wall of the vessel arising from it.
0f thousands of specimens more or less broken, seventeen are sufficiently complete to recognize their entire shape. Some are bowl shaped, or cup-like or pot-like. Ten of the pots are bowl shaped of which one is marked with an exquisite ornamentation on the whole area of the body wall, leaving a smooth space near the bottom. The rim is provided with a single knob perforated near the centre. ln this specimen evidences of repair are seen in two small holes which have been bored on the margins of a fracture.(Fig. 1， PI. I).
