In addition to the discoveries in the tomb, Walberg's team found a well that yielded an impressive pottery sherd with an elaborate relief of men and bulls. The well also led to a finding that troubles Walberg: skeletal remains from 36 different dogs. "It's a puzzle. We don't know much about the place of dogs in the Greek world. There are no signs of trauma. The dogs are not old.

"In a related development, researchers uncovered the foundations and related remains of a building that appeared to be a place for the preparation of food for the local populace.

They were able to piece together a stele with the ideogrammatic inscription of a folded piece of flatbread and a bell."
