Help - can u tell me on this picture of engine what this part is?

I am considering buying a 1991 E300 2.6. First Mercedes for me, so am somewhat unfamiliar with what is what in the engine bay. It was sitting for a while and was vandalized as follows. Someone stole the part that I circled in red in the picture (this is a pic I found on the web, the car in question had nothing there, just some wires hanging loose).

can someone tell me what this is? I'm hoping it's something inexpensive and Ok to get from junkyard.

Thanks for your help!

Picture is too small and I am not familiar with this engine, but this is where all logic vacuum components are on my older MB. It is a maze to rebuild, but W124 has all the WIS easy available on the net. Visit W124 section and find links in the stickies.

I believe it is Mercedes version of the ignition control module. It should have some vacuum lines going to it and some wires that control your coil, without it the car will not start or run. Sorry but I am unfamiliar on what MB actually calls the part.
