    Summary (English)

    • A votive deposit was found on the Corso Pierluigi da Palestrina, located in the area of the temple discovered at the piazzale della Liberation at a higher level. The findings include a pit (situated immediately at the back or on a side of the temple) rich in bronze statues, female terracotta statuettes, anatomical ex votos (uteri, eyes, etc.), heads of cows and many different types of ceramic forms. Among the osteological findings relative to the animals used in sacrifice are the remains of sheeps and/or goats, one ox, small birds (partridge, quail), and a cat. The materials in the complex attest to the use of the cult area between the fourth and second centuries BC. In this last period, the deposit became sealed with a layer of soil which is covered by a paving in slabs of tufo.
