Certainly something should be handed over (to give that poor kid a visual
memory of the event before he gets hit) but I seem to recall reading that
it'd be more likely to be something like an inscribed dagger than a clump
of dirt.  (It'd be another thing the new owner could bring out when there
was a dispute later on).  Would the mayor accept (or rather give) a statuette
carved from an actual stone from the site, maybe?
