These findings are critically important in helping archeologists to date the temple where they were found, to around the 6th century BC – possibly the oldest in the archaeological area of Selinunte in Sicily.
They’ve been unearthed in recent months by a team led by Clemente Marconi of New York University, working with the Department of Culture and Identity in Sicily and Selinunte Archaeological Park Together, they’ve also identified the remains of a central colonnade and nearby are pottery shards dated from around 650 BC, including a long vessel decorated with grazing animals.
