Fragment of a ceramic vessel, probably a bowl with round bottom, from sondage 6, u.s. 124. Visible decorations include a zig-zag pattern and a svastika. Dating following Solinas 1995: 384, who gives a dating to the 5th century BC, though it is not clear whether it refers to the object or the settlement; Morandi 2004 (also 2007: 298, no. 24) dates the object to Golasecca III A (II–III A in 2001: 17, no. 12). The original publication of the object in Poggiani Keller 1990: 15 is not available to us.
