A group of two swords, a leaf-shape spearhead and four flanged axes have been found twenty
years ago in the bed of the Cellina stream, near Montereale Valcellina (Pordenone). This hoard is
interpreted as votive offering to the river from the Late Bronze Age, in order to favour the water
crossing. The weapons are tied to a Roman inscription and two column drums found scattered at
the church of San Rocco, in the northern part of the town, to support the hypothesis of the presence
of a water cult. Through an examination of the available data and detailed analysis of the proposal
is a revision of the problem, to verify the presence and continuity of rituals related to the water in
ancient Montereale for the period from the Late Bronze and Roman age.
