STATION 08 – ARCHAEOLOGICAL FINDINGS

Some archaeological findings dug through the years in the area around Tuoro present inscriptions in the Etruscan language. Not many such tablets were found, but the texts are quite long and, therefore, very important for scholars.
The Etruscan “Putto Graziani”, a bronze statuette of a child holding a bird, was among the prize findings in Tuoro. It is probably an ex voto, an object dedicated, maybe in thanks or as an offering, to a divinity.
Another finding connecting Tuoro to Etruscan history is known as the Tabula Cortonensis, a bronze table tentatively dated to the beginning of the second century BCE, written in the Etruscan language and concerning the sale of some land.
