Fixing chipped terra cotta drain pipe

Hi:
While digging in the back of the house I chipped a small hole in a terra cotta drain pipe. Does anyone know good ways to seal this hole?
Thanks.

I think you mean vitrify tile. Put a piece of sheet metal over it and then some sand and cement over that.

I think a piece of aluminum would last longer.
