Papena Project

Papena, 1964, another cemetery of the Hellenistic Period roughly contemporary with Malignano, also excavated by Prof. Kyle Phillips. The recovered material was sparse but did provide valuable information on Late Etruscan settlement patterns between Siena and the metal-bearing mountains (Colline Metallifere) to the west. Papena is published in K.M. Phillips, “Relazione preliminare,” Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità XIX (1965) 5-29; and by the same author, “Papena (Siena). Sepultura tardo-etrusca,” Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità XXI (1967) 23-40.
