Images in Poggiani Keller 1999: 179, fig. 13 (drawing = Morandi 2004: 656, fig. 25.210 = Poggiani Keller 2007: 161, fig. 154) and Morandi 2004: tav. XXVII.210 (photo = Morandi 2007: 297, fig. 295).

The small ointment pot was found in a child burial under the corner of a house in the settlement (details in Poggiani Keller 1999: 174–177). Poggiani Keller 2007: 162 dates the burial to the end of the Early Iron Age (5th century BC in Poggiani Keller 1999: 177), which fits with the dating of the other inscribed finds from Parre; the dating to the 2nd–1st century BC given by Morandi follows De Marinis 1999: 122, n. 35, who notes that the ceramic forms do not agree with the high dating.
