5442, Tuscania, Ara del Tufo funerary naiskos

  • Record number: 5442
  • Site: Tuscania
  • Building or zone: Ara del Tufo funerary naiskos
  • Remarks: Excavation data indicate that Roof 4-3 and Roof 4-6 elements decorated a single building at the time of its destruction. The acroteria bodies in Paris, Musée du Louvre, are hypothetically believed to have come from Tuscania, although the museum records give Ardea as their provenance. The 2 horse hoofs, however, were excavated at Ara del Tufo.
