This paper covers a Late La Tène tomb discovered in Treviglio (Bergamo, Lombardy) in 1980, famous due to its usefulness as a reference context for the relative and absolute chronology of the Late La Tène in Cisalpine Gaul, thanks to the rich grave goods both of La Tène type and of Italic tradition or provenance. Chronologically, the grave corresponds to LT D 2 phase as it is defined in northern Italy, comparable with central European LT D 1b. In this period, Treviglio and the area between Adda and Serio were part of the territory belonging to the Insubres, as evidenced by the features of the burial rite and by the large number of drachmas of the Rikos type found in the tomb. The grave goods include some plates and one cup, some thin-walled ware, one “vaso a trottola” and two one-handled jugs, a Lamboglia 2 amphora, one bronze pitcher, two unguentaria and a pair of bronze strigils, one razor, one knife and sixteen coins. Particularly significant from a chronological point of view is the association between Nauheim, Cenisola and Schüsselfibeln. This paper takes into consideration the archaeological findings, the architectural features of the tomb’s structure and, finally, the results of the analyses carried out on the recovered anthropological and faunal remains.

Abstract

This paper covers a Late La Tène tomb discovered in Treviglio (Bergamo, Lombardy) in 1980, famous due to its usefulness as a reference context for the relative and absolute chronology of the Late La Tène in Cisalpine Gaul, thanks to the rich grave goods both of La Tène type and of Italic tradition or provenance. Chronologically, the grave corresponds to LT D 2 phase as it is defined in northern Italy, comparable with central European LT D 1b. In this period, Treviglio and the area between Adda and Serio were part of the territory belonging to the Insubres, as evidenced by the features of the burial rite and by the large number of drachmas of the Rikos type found in the tomb. The grave goods include some plates and one cup, some thin-walled ware, one “vaso a trottola” and two one-handled jugs, a Lamboglia 2 amphora, one bronze pitcher, two unguentaria and a pair of bronze strigils, one razor, one knife and sixteen coins. Particularly significant from a chronological point of view is the association between Nauheim, Cenisola and Schüsselfibeln. This paper takes into consideration the archaeological findings, the architectural features of the tomb’s structure and, finally, the results of the analyses carried out on the recovered anthropological and faunal remains.
