(From archival folder for T.30) Clarissa Dryden to Kyle M. Phillips, February 23, 1966: mention of an entry in the diaries of her cousin, C. Densmore Curtis, dated November 15, 1913, in which he mentions a trip to "Ponte de None" and the discovery of votive terracottas. The reference is probably to Ponte di Nona, a suburb of Rome on the via Prenestina, but it is not certain that the artifacts discovered there are the heads published by Phillips in "Studi Etruschi"
