Small Roman Venus discovered at La Alcudia archaeological site in Valencia, Spain
A bone-made 8.5cm height figurine depicting a naked woman covered with a shawl on her left shoulder has been discovered while working on the Project Domus - La Alcudia. Vivir en Ilici, whose archaeological excavations begun some days ago in Elche. The Roman figurine seems to symbolise a female goddess that should have been about about 12 inches high if its feet and head were not cut off. With this find, the research team has been rewarded after having begun excavations in little more than a week.
Domus - La Alcudia. Vivir en Ilici is a project from the UA-INAPH Archaeology & Heritage Institute, financed by the University of Alicante Programme for R&D+i Promotion 2016.
