Bowl Emerges

Caption: An inverted bowl, covering another bowl with a ritual deposit, emerges from the earth at Sardis. The bowls contained a ritual deposit of a coin, small metal implements and an egg. The intact deposit mirrors similar discoveries made by Princeton University archaeologists 100 years ago, although those discoveries were not intact.
