The dies are notable for their cursive style with such poor lettering the reading is uncertain - possibly CASSICOS \ CASSICCOS A separate name was given to differentiate the dies from those of CANICOS P54 the most likely alternative but typically with clear readable dies. Originally classified as a different name SOIIIRINI has been added when it became apparent that when rotated the reading matched P106 Die 01A01.
DIES 01A01, 04A01= P132 ZC SOIIRIN1 Die 04A01

FORMS Cam 5, large platters & cup

DISTRIBUTION Die 01A01 is one of the most common in Britain with at least 14 examples on large platters in TR - Camulodunum (10); Braughing; Baldock; Chichester 1948; Silchester; Trier (TR11), TR1C Cam 8; Freinsheim, Speyer Museum.

When rotated 180 degrees the stamps of P132 are very close to P106 and so the die has been assigned to Cassic(c)os P106 Die 04A01 as the die used for TN.
