Key to Umbria: Perugia

This page describes objects not currently on display, as well as those that I have not yet tracked down.


Bronze discs (7th century BC)

These two bronze discs in the Guardabassi Collection, which probably came from a female grave, were found in 1880 outside Bevagna, on the road to Todi (see Walk II, Bevagna).  (This illustration of them is from the museum).


Sextus Valerius Proculus (early 1st century AD)

This inscription (CIL XI 7979) was discovered in the Ipogeo di Colle, Bettona. It reads:





It commemorates Sextus Valerius Proculus, son of Sextus, who had belonged to the the Clustumina Tribe and had been a duumrvir and praetor Etruriae


Votive bronze (late 5th century BC)

This votive bronze, which seems to be of northern Etruscan manufacture, was found in 1873 near Corciano.

Gualdo Tadino

Votive bronze (early 5th century BC)

This votive bronze figure was discovered in 1959 in Taino, near Gualdo Tadino, which was later the site of Roman Tadinum.

Civitella d’ Arno

Supports funerary bed (ca. 100 BC)

These two bronze supports from a funerary bed were found in 1787, apparently at Civitella d’ Arno.   Each has the head of a lion at its upper end and the head of a woman below.

Nocera Umbra

Finds from the Portone Necropolis (ca. 570 –670 AD)  

This Lombard necropolis was discovered near Nocera Umbra in 1897.
