Image in Pellegrini 1963: 302, fig. 1 (photo).

Upper part (shoulder and mouth) of a vaso a trottola found among other ceramic vessels, probably from a necropolis, at Madonna delle Bozzole, about ten years before the first mention in Strada 1958: 171. Measurements from Pellegrini 1963: 302; dating from Morandi (Pellegrini gives the second half of the 2nd century BC, based on nothing much really; Lejeune RIG II: 40 says that the associated coins were produced until the mid-1st century BC).
