Small vaso a rocchetto "[d]ai vecchi scavi", found in the depot of the Museo Paolo Giovio and published in Tibiletti Bruno 1977b: 124 (no. 104 g). Nobody appears to have seen the object since one Mr. Piovan, who found it despite incorrect labeling and took the photograph for Tibiletti Bruno (ibid. 133, n. 69); it is first registered as "da tempo irreperibile" in Morandi 2004. The find place Ligurno (a fraction of Cantello) is given with a question mark by Tibiletti Bruno.

See the inscription page for the palaeographical dating by Morandi.
