Abstract: 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 practices.
