Social and cultural aspects
This monumental stone statue, datable to the sixth century BC, is one of the most important archeological finds of this region as well as a masterpiece of Italic art. It was excavated in 1934 in a necropolis in the vicinity of Capestrano, in the province of L’Aquila, and it is now preserved in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale d’Abruzzo – Villa Frigeri in Chieti. The so-called Capestrano Warrior – a vestige of the pre-Roman, Italic past of this area – shows a man of the highest social rank wearing an armor, equipped with an axe and a sword, while two spears are carved on the columns at either side of the figure. A partly spoiled inscription runs on the left column.
