Materiali inediti da Sovana. Alcuni corredi funerari dalla necropolis di San Sebastiano
Hellenistic pottery, found in four Etruscan chamber tombs in Sovana, is presented here. The most interesting vessels are some jugs, decorated with a floral pattern, that were produced locally in the third century B.C. A black-glazed plate contains an inscription that is the oldest Latin epigraphic document of Sovana and it shows the slow process of Romanization of an Etruscan town in the first century B.C. This funeral complex is interesting because of the lack of documentation at Sovana, that is perfectly preserved.
