The majority of Zapotec urns are associated with mortuary contexts, and in particular tombs, where they were placed in different positions relative to the structure: on the roof, in front of the entrance and in niches above the entrance [Figure 1] (Saville 1904: 51), or within the tomb itself, in the antechamber, in wall niches [Figure 2] and on the floor. However, some urns have been found as offerings related to buildings, placed under stucco floors or in cache boxes near salient features of the structure.
