Medieval ceramics of San Potito. After the abandonement of the imperial villa (ca. in the last third of the 3rd century AD), the settlement moved up to the nearby hill. The castle of San Potito was first mentioned in 1074. However, the burial place remained in the valley and a church was also built there. This religious building was deserted long before 1653.On the territory of the former villa 197 pottery sherds could be identified as medieval, dating from the 9th to the 15th centuries AD. They attest to a small population, but also illustrate the quite far reaching trading connections of San Potito, related to the vicinity of the Via Valeria, the main road between Rome and Corfinium.

The fragments of a high quality, enamel painted, blue glass bottle with the date 1671 on its shoulder were found in the Castle District of Buda, in a huge pit dated to the period of the Ottoman occupation. The shape of the object shows eastern influences, while its decoration is clearly western. The origin of the bottle is probably Transylvanian, based on its characteristics and a small group of parallels.
