Caere

 

an Etruscan city-state, now Cerveteri, Italy. According to legend, the city was founded by Pelasgian tribes and named Agylla. In 535 B.C., Carthage and Caere defeated the Phocaean fleet off the shores of Corsica. During the Gallic invasion of Italy in 390 B.C., the Roman vestal virgins took refuge in Caere with their sacred vessels. Caere was conquered by the Romans in 358 B.C.

The foundations of the Manganello temple (sixth century B.C.) have been preserved, as well as the remains of the city wall (fifth and fourth centuries B.C.) and the ruins of a Roman theater. A necropolis containing burials from the seventh to third centuries B.C. (including the Regolini-Galassi tomb) is located northwest of the city on Banditaccia Hill.

En el caso especifico de los hallazgos de vasos griegos, esta extensa geografia se debe en gran parte a que los centros de produccion de ceramica se encontraban en muchas regiones, principalmente en Atenas y Corinto, pero tambien en Beocia, Eubea, Rodas, Laconia, Quios, Sicilia e Italia, hasta en Etruria, en la ciudad de Caere. En segundo lugar, tambien porque se exportaban a toda Grecia e Italia (Magna Grecia y Etruria), por lo que a la hora de hacer hallazgos muchas veces se encuentran en las zonas donde fueron vendidas y no donde fueron producidas (Carpenter, 2001: 7-8).
