FONTE VENEZIANA
   The location of an important votive deposit dating to between 530 and 480 BC on the outskirts of Arezzo at San Donato, discovered in 1869. The deposit consisted of human and animal bronze figurines, as well as representations of parts of bodies including heads, eyes, and limbs located within a poorly described structure. Other finds included metal rings, fragments of metal, a gold brooch, bronze, bucchero, and Attic vessels in association with animal bones. Some of the original 180 bronzes survive in Florence and include standing male and female figures, some heads, and animals.
