Bronze ears were found in central Italy

In central Italy, near the village of San Casciano dei Bagni, unusual finds were discovered in the area of ​​a former Etruscan pool fed by hot springs. Among the discovered artifacts are bronze ears that ancient Romans put on – according to researchers – to ask the gods to hear their prayers. The finds also include sculptures showing body parts, e.g. phallus, womb, breasts, leg or arm.

There were also numerous remains of fountains, statues, altars and others dedicated to Apollo, Isis or the goddess Fortuna Primigenia.
