Geocache Description:


Etruschi in Maremma #3 - Tempio di Talamonaccio

[ITA]
Il tempio di Talamonaccio fu fondato alla fine del IV secolo a.C., contemporaneamente alle ultime lotte delle città etrusche contro Roma, e rimase in uso anche dopo la conquista romana.
Il tempio, di tipo etrusco-italico, era posto su un alto basamento in pietra, chiamato podio, ed era chiuso nella parte posteriore; la cella, che ospitava la statua della divinità, era preceduta da un portico colonnato (pronao). Il tetto, a doppio spiovente, era costituito da travi in legno coperte da tegole e coppi; le parti lignee esposte agli agenti atmosferici erano protette da decorazioni in terracotta, fissate al supporto con chiodi.
Sulla facciata posteriore era collocato il celebre frontone (datato a poco dopo il 150 a.C.), con la rappresentazione della lotta fratricida tra Eteocle e Polinice, figli del re di Tebe Edipo, per il comando della città. Della decorazione che si trovava sulla facciata anteriore non rimangono invece che pochi frammenti, che non permettono una ricostruzione attendibile.

The roof, a double sloping, consisted of wooden beams covered with tiles and tiles, the wooden parts exposed to weather conditions were protected from terracotta decorations are fixed on the support with nails.
