Fragments of paper thin bronze. Some from a small bowl, other possible from a bulla. Fragments of bronze sheathing. Some 10 small fragments have been joined to form a piece of irregular outline. A portion of a disk is preserved, the grooved edge of which joins at an acute angle another piece, suggesting a small rhyton somewhat like the large clay rhyton from Regolini-Galassi Tomb. But the bronze is very light and intter surface bears the impression of an uneven surface like hammered iron; fragments probably used to sheath another material.

From a hemispherical object, in the center of which is a bronze rivet and washer.
