Large black-glazed patera (type Lamboglia 6 / Morel 1446), partly reconstructed from fragments, found in the ustrinum of grave 8bis (excavation 1986/1987) of the Sant'Ambrogio necropolis; see Volontè Fredini 1990: 71, and Binaghi Leva 1990: 37, 56–59 for details about graves 8 and 8bis and the finds. From the same context VA·14 Arsago Seprio, VA·15 Arsago Seprio and VA·16 Arsago Seprio. Dating from Binaghi Leva 1990; Volontè Fredini 1990: 71 dates the object typologically to the second half of the 1st c. BC; Morandi 2004 gives La Tène D1/2.
