Dark blue (214) beads are not usually found in opaque (183) glass. As with many of the previous beads the size of around 1cm (164) rounded shape with flat sides (124) and shortish length (152) are the most common for viking era beads. The decorative element of monochrome lines (311) in a staright roughly parallel wrap (503) is found in similar beads such as type B381, although the lines on that bead type are more wiggly.
