Mentioned in an excavation report (Tischer 2006: 216). Examined by TIR in July 2014.

Image in Tischer 2006: 215, fig. 13 (photo).

Found during a rescue excavation caused by construction works in 2005. The smooth smallish stone, referred to as a river pebble by Tischer, is oval and perforated lengthwise; its function is unclear. The object is isolated in the Raetic corpus; the only other round stone is much larger and not perforated.
