The small unglazed pot, referred to as an urn by Herbig 1906: 190, no. 7, 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: 262, who report the urn missing from the inventory of the RGZM. See also Ulrich 1914 I: 623 f.

The pot can be compared with TI·53 Giubiasco and classified as type Marabini X, dated to the late Republican / Augustan period (cf. Pernet et al. 2006: 197 f.).
