A lira sour and a guerrier. Two bronze from excavations on Cuma acropolis





Two bronzes, a female lyre player and a warrior, were found during the excavations conducted by the Second University of Naples on the Tempio Maggiore of the acropolis of Cumae, in a leveling layer. The two artifacts date around the end of the 8th century BC : a local production, inspired by different stimuli, but strictly connected to the Euboic colonial background. Despite the simplicity of the shape, an interpretation considering mythical references and engages in religious traditions centered on the force of arms and the oracular word, poised between muses and sibyl, is here proposed.
