    Vlasto, through whose hands the bulk of 
        the hd. passed, was convinced that the 
        whole formed a single find. This first-
        hand opinion should carry more weight 
        than Orsi's subsequent claim that the 
        "hoard" was a conflation of several 
        finds
    Babelon's date of burial was based on the 
        association of the Chalcis-Boeotia 
        stater with the political events of 
        508 B.C. The discovery of three medium 
        incuse of Metapontum among the 
        pieces in the BM may suggest a some-
        what later date
