Museo Archeologico Nazionale Massimo Pallottino

The Museum, located inside the Federician castle of Melfi, presents the important archaeological documentation found in the Vulture-Melfese area. The archaic age goes back to the funerary objects that have restored refined daunie ceramics with geometric decoration, bronze armors, precious ornaments in silver, gold and amber as well as bronze vases of both Greek and Etruscan production. The classical section focuses on extraordinary finds from the IV-III century BC among which red-figure Greek-Greek ceramics and monumental polychrome-decorated vases with applied figures, of Canosa's production, found in Lavello (the ancient Forentum). The Roman phase is documented by an exceptional marble sarcophagus of the 2nd century AD with relief decoration, referable to the workshops of Asia Minor which presents on the lid the deceased "sleeper" and on the side slabs of the Roman heroes and framed in niches.
