This funerary urn has the particularity of having been used twice. On its surface there is a palimpsest, i.e. a writing that has been erased and then rewritten. Its text refers to a father who lost his son at the age of 10, whose ashes it would contain, covered with a lid that has not been preserved, as the rim shows.
