In 1969 the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, purchased fifty-five fragments of relief disci from Athenian terracotta lamps of the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. They comprise thirty discus types, and the presence of at least one waster may suggest that they are discards from a kiln site. Recent excavations in the Kerameikos have provided some parallels for the material, especially from the Roman kilns which were built in the ruins of Building Y, to the east of the Sacred Gate.
