Within about a yard of this nest we found another, which consisted of a large urn, or ossuary, of very coarse black earth, and was exactly like the last mentioned, both in shape and size; it was nearly full of burnt bones, coals, and ashes. It was broken in the discovery. A small urn of white earth, blacked over, and much like that described at No. 5; this also was destroyed. A patera of fine red earth, exactly like that described at No. 4, except that this is somewhat broader and deeper (being near two inches and a half deep), and has the name PRIMANI impressed on its inside [M 6833]; it has also this mark, made with a sharp instrument on its outside. Here was also a very pretty lachrymatory of red earth [M 6831]; it is four inches and a quarter high, and one inch and a half diameter; it holds but very little.
