Veio Archaeological Park

Veio Archaeological Park

The archaeological area of Veio is located in the Portonaccio area, in Rome , and includes one of the sanctuaries of the Etruscan city of Veio , located outside the urban walls on a natural shelf overlooking the valley crossed by the Fosso della Mola (tributary of the ancient Cremera).

The sanctuary contains the oldest and most notable example of a Tuscan temple known so far. It was originally adorned with a splendid polychrome terracotta decoration culminating on the top of the roof in a series of larger-than-life-size statues, including the famous late-archaic group of Apollo and Hercules , faced in the struggle for possession of the horned doe. golden.

Next to the temple there was a pool intended for ritual ablutions and, further east, a large altar. From the dedicatory inscriptions and the acroterial and votive statues we know that Minerva and Apollo must have been venerated in the sanctuary.
