Abstract. In 2016, we carried out archaeological surveys on the Collay mountain of Riobamba, Ecuador. Among the recovered material, there is Puruhá, Cañari and Costeño style pottery, all belonging to the end of the Late Formative Period (ca. 800 BC) and the Regional Development Period (ca. 500 AD). The discovery of these ceramic styles suggests the presence of an important Puruhá settlement, very near the Llanura de Tapi, that maintained important connections with the Cañari of Ecuador´s central highland region.
