Images in Negroni Catacchio 1979: 508, fig. 12 (drawings = Negroni Catacchio 1982: fig. 47 [drawings of the whole vessel and its underside, but not that of its upper side, mirrored in one of the publications]).

Fiasca a trottola of type B; detailed description in Negroni Catacchio 1982: 327, PV 09. Found next to the supporting wall of structure H ("Capanna del Masso") together with a beaker (ibid. PV 08), counted among the late La Tène votive deposits made within an abandoned Golaseccan settlement (see Pianvalle). Dating from Negroni Catacchio 1982: 337, 345, who dates the fiasce a trottola of type B to LT C2 at the earliest, rather early LT D. Morandi 2004: 648 (no. 197) gives the 1st century BC (LT D2) due to the "forma evoluta" of the bottle.
