The three fragments were reunited by C. Cathelinais in 1997, the inscription on them was identified by S. Verger (Verger 1998: 270 fn. 19). Dating: after Verger (1998: 272) the object itself is not datable. After the archaeological context it can be dated to the 2nd half of the 6th century BC (which is not consistent with the informations given by Kaenel 2000). Further details of excavation and chronological phases of the site in Verger 1998: 265-270.
