name2 Cincos
comment NA FABRIC D. 14166T
The implication is that Vritves is the slave of Cincos. Vritves certainly worked alone using several 1-line dies and probably worked at Rheims. Stamps of a potter Cincos from dies cut by a different hand were excavated at the Mourmelon-le-Petit in the Marne-Vesle potteries

DIES
Single-line - 01A01, 01B01
2-line with CINCOS - 02A03
DIE-STYLES Dies-groups 01A and 02A were cut by the same hand in a formal style; note the characteristic shape of \I and R. Die 01B01 the letter shapes are different and the sizes uneven with a notably short T.
