The research focuses on weapons coming from the extra-urban sanctuary of contrada Mango in Segesta, investigated between the fifties and sixties of the 20th century. The study illustrates the types and chronology of the »indigenous« and Greek weapons (mainly defensive) attested in the sanctuary, and clarifies and discusses the location of the finds (along the south, north and east peribolos walls).

This category of votives is also interpreted in the light of other findings from the sanctuary that refer to war, mainly some fragments of a Parian marble statue of Nike of the middle of the 5th century BC ca. Other pieces of evidence coming from the other Segestan sanctuary on the Acropoli Nord are also taken into account: some images of warriors on »indigenous« and Greek pottery, a bronze statuette of an ithyphallic warrior and some »indigenous« weapons.

Abstract

The research focuses on weapons coming from the extra-urban sanctuary of contrada Mango in Segesta, investigated between the fifties and sixties of the 20th century. The study illustrates the types and chronology of the »indigenous« and Greek weapons (mainly defensive) attested in the sanctuary, and clarifies and discusses the location of the finds (along the south, north and east peribolos walls). Finally, the research tries to understand the function and role of the weapons in the sacred area. This category of votives is also interpreted in the light of other findings from the sanctuary that refer to war, mainly some fragments of a Parian marble statue of Nike of the middle of the 5th century BC ca. Other pieces of evidence coming from the other Segestan sanctuary on the Acropoli Nord are also taken into account: some images of warriors on »indigenous« and Greek pottery, a bronze statuette of an ithyphallic warrior and some »indigenous« weapons.
