LOCRI EPIZEPHYRII



Salvatore La Rosa
WWW.LOCRIANTICA.IT Welcome to Magna Graecia ARCHAEOLOGICAL FINDS

 
VARIOUS FINDS
 

This section represents a little showcase to let you discover and admire a (very small) portion of the lesser known but still interesting archaeological finds unearthed during the archaeological excavations in the area of the ancient Locri Epizephyrii. Here you can see some archaeological finds preserved at the National Archaeological Museum of Locri Epizephyrii, lesser known than the ones which can be found at the National Museum of Reggio Calabria.

Again, let me point out that this is just a little taste of the extraordinary beauties found in the Locrian area after thousands of years from their making, and this page wants to be, if there is still the need, a further invite to you all to come and visit the wonders of the Museums and of the archaeological sites of Reggio Calabria's Province; places with a millenarian history.
