The find was kept in a child's grave next to its owner's remains. Excavators say the bracelet with a small bell rang and alarmed the parents where their child was.

The cemetery was discovered in 1930 when the first graves started to fall from this cliff.

The inhabitants are believed to be Greeks or their descendants who arrived in the seventh and sixth centuries BC.

Another child burial was found with beads made of Egyptian faience and two pendants.
