When Oliverio published this base, he did not mention any hole for attachment on the upper side (which he did for other certainly votive bases found in the same area). In the SEG, the base was given as votive, probably in view of its findspot. In 1979 the base was still presented amongst a series of funerary bases, surmounted by a funerary statue, so that it was impossible to check the upper face. Neither was this possible in 1997 after its having been moved to the backyard of the new Museum. As the findspot was in the upper layers of an area that was not yet well defined at the time, we may as well suspect that the block had been brought from the nearest Necropolis to the Sanctuary for a re-use.
