The site of Sant’Angelo Vecchio at the Greek city-state of Metapontion in southern Italy is notable for a group of kilns dating to the later fourth century BCE that are associated with the production of moulded terracotta figurines and plaques. In addition to investigating technical practices of a coroplastic workshop, this large assemblage of terracottas allows for preliminary assessment of their production with varied, but well-defined, imagery against the local consumption of terracottas with the same imagery at sanctuaries and farmhouses throughout the territory of Metapontion and, in some cases, at neighbouring Greek city-states as well as Lucanian sites.
