Roman Collector Posted November 8, 2022 · Patron Share Posted November 8, 2022 "An extraordinary series of near-perfectly preserved bronze statues have been unearthed at a natural thermal spa in Italy. "Twenty-four statues were discovered in the Tuscan village of San Casciano dei Bagni which lies halfway between Rome and Florences. The region is known for a series of natural thermal pools and San Casciano dei Bagni boasts a 2,000-year-old spa, Balnea Clusinae that legend says was founded by Porsenna, an Etruscan king. Romans continued to use the baths in Antiquity and the town attracted visitors from throughout Europe from the Renaissance through the early 20th Century." And if the find wasn't amazing enough, the "statues were covered by almost 6,000 bronze, silver, and gold coins"! 14 1 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
