National Archaeological Museum of Siritide - Policoro
The Museum presents some of the most significant findings relating to the two Greek cities of Siris and Herakleia and to the indigenous centers of the hinterland. Votive statuettes and grave goods from the 7th-6th century BC with locally produced figured ceramics, among the oldest made in Magna Graecia, can be attributed to the phase of the city of Siris. Among the most significant finds referable to Herakleia, there are matrices for statuettes found in the craft district, votive objects found in the sanctuaries and above all important funerary objects of the IV-III century BC characterized by splendid red-figure ceramics and refined filigree gold jewelry. The museum also exhibits some of the most important findings from the enotri (9th-5th century BC) and Lucanian (4th century BC) centers of the hinterland. These are grave goods of extraordinary importance characterized, in the VII-V century BC, by bronze armor, silver, gold and amber jewelry, by indigenous vases with geometric decoration, by Greek figured ceramics and by Etruscan bucchero vases.
