The gold work constitutes one of the most important collections of funereal items found in the Cádiz necropolis. The high number of pieces and the common features that define them suggest that there were local workshops, which were mainly active between the end of the 7th century B.C. and the middle of the 5th century B.C., although they survived for a much longer period. They are pieces of gold or gold and silver alloy, produced using plating, filigree or granulation techniques. The decorative themes are mainly Eastern in origin, especially Egyptian, with anthropomorphic and plant motifs, most of which have a religious significance.
