Excavations carried out in Pontecagnano nothern sanctuary area have brought to light more than
4000 votive terracottas. Installed during the VI century B.C in a suburban area – near a swamp, the
sanctuary was intentionally defuncionalized shortly before Picentia colony foundation. Statuette
fragments have been found into important votive deposits concentrated in specialised zones of
sacred area. For the sanctuary ‘disinauguration’ ritual, the terracottas have been diffusely discharged
in large quantities on the whole sanctuary surface, together with other votive categories and with
the Sanctuary furnishings.
The wide repertory, made up by 6th and 4th centuries B.C. evidences, has supplied some interesting
causes for reflection about sanctuary ritual peculiarities and about the local coroplastic industry
