According to Wilhelmina, this implement proved to be a zappa (a hoe), and the next morning the workman brought a wooden handle from his own hoe and it proved to fit perfectly. Not far from this hoe, an ancient martellina was found which proved to be exactly the same as what the workmen were using to slash and clean the weeds from the gardens. Many nails, as well as bones and teeth were found throughout the garden. Many fragments of small glass perfume bottles were found, together with a few that were almost complete. Also found were a few broken terracotta unguent containers.
