Description

The large necropolis of Campovalano comprises over 600 tombs, dating from the Iron Age to the Hellenistic Period (12th century BC – 1st century BC). Some of these tombs are dated between the 7th and the 6th century BC and, thanks to the variety of the luxury goods buried, it is possible to identify the members of a dominating upper class who emphasized their status through the richness of their burials. Both male and female burials have rich and extraordinary goods. In particular, in tomb 119, among other amazing finds, a pair of magnificent bronze sandals were recovered. The sandals have a wooden anatomic plantar, flexible thanks to hinged joints placed in the middle of the sole. The external part is covered with bronze sheets and embellished with an embossed decoration depicting mythological figures and real animals, such as: a mermaid, a sphinx assaulting a man, a chimera, a panther biting a boar, a bull running with a woman on his back who is holding his hair and, finally, a man riding a horse.
