La chiave romana a testa di cane da Mevaniola

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[automatically translated] In Mevaniola site at Galeata (FC), it was found a big key in the Roman Iron Age, with a handle made of bronze and shaped like a dog's head, which was intended to open the door of one of the largest public buildings the city, probably a temple. The analysis of its decoration suggests that the architect had been inspired to some important precedent sculptural model and a larger scale, perhaps to be found within the copistica tradition of a famous statue cult of the late fourth century. BC, the Serapis of Bryaxis.
