MetadataShow full item record
This annual report is about excavations in the territory of Metaponto carried out by the Institute of Classical Archaeology of the University of Texas at Austin. The main aim of these excavations was to learn more about the rural population, in the period when Greek and Roman civilization transformed the area (600 BC - 400 AD). The report describes the excavation of a rural Greek cemetery including a family plot and the tomb of a young athlete; the excavation of an archaic Greek rural sanctuary; and the excavation of a Roman tile factory.
