Brass Spanish religious medallions with varied imprinted designs and messages were found at the site as well as a crucifix (not shown). According to analyst Gregory Waselkov, one of the medallions denoted a Latin prayer of exorcism. It was impressed with the initial letters of the words, “Begone Satan! Tempt me not with your vanities! What you offer me is evol.  Drink the poisoned cup yourself!” Image courtesy of THC.
