page 225 note 4 Mr. W. Watson in his article on the Felmersham Bronzes (Antiq. Journ. xxix, 37–61) calls attention to the connexion of the river-god Achelous, who took the form of a bull and whose head has been identified on two bronze bucket escutcheons, with the ‘Lingering association of bucrania with water’.

page 228 note 2 The Brough sceptres and escutcheon were discovered as a result of pipe-laying, not official excavation, so that the finds may well not be complete.

page 228 note 3 The sight of the Pope (on a recent newsreel) sprinkling holy water on the worshippers from a small silver bucket reminded me of this point.
