Images in Rubat Borel & Paccolat 2008: 131, fig. 5 (photo) and 6 (drawing).
Found on the 26th of February 2003 below the remains of a Gallo-Roman villa (3rd–5th century AD), most likely in secondary context – evidence for an occupation of the find area in the La Tène period (4th–3rd century BC) were found to the south of the villa. See Rubat Borel & Paccolat 2008: 127 f. for details. The small, roughly rectangular plaque of local mica schist appears to be fragmentary, though Rubat Borel & Paccolat seem to assume that at least the top and left edges (as depicted in the images) are original; its function is unclear.
