Conjunto Arqueológico de Cástulo

In the archaeological excavations in the center of Castulo, it was found a small figure of ivory and gold. A woman is wearing a toga with herringbone trim on his tunic, and from his clothes pulls out his right hand, which leaves on the chest, with front view and hair orderly. It comes from strata dated to the V century A.D.

During cleaning and restoration under the soil adhering to the figure, it was possible to observe the remains of a thin gold foil that covered the mantle.
