The black-glazed cup is one of the objects claimed by Domenico Pini to have been excavated by him in June/July 1901 at the Giubiasco necropolis, but may have been bought, or found at nearby Pianezzo (Tori et al. 2004: 27 f., 64 f., 69). The forged grave complex is described in Tori et al. 2004: 249. See also Ulrich 1914 I: 617.

The cup is of type Lamboglia 28 / Morel 2654a, dated to LT D2 (cf. Pernet et al. 2006: 188).
