Une autre ‘note auxerroise’. La statuette étrusque d’Appoigny (Yonne)

Abstract : In July 2015, a bronze statuette was unearthed during the preventive excavation of the Gallo-Roman site «Les Bries», in the township of Appoigny near Auxerre (Yonne, France). It is probably part of a statuary group of a candelabrum finial produced in the Etruscan city of Vulci around the 2nd quarter of the 5th century BC. This exceptional discovery would therefore be evidence of an importation of the Gallo-Roman era, or the manifestation of a local rediscovery during the 3rd-4th centuries AD in close relation with the nearby necropolis of Gurgy, known for its Italic imports during the Hallstatt D3 period. Situated in the cultural context of these Celtic aristocracies of Burgundy from the 5th century BC, as in Vix and Lavau, or of the Gallo-Roman elites of the region of Auxerre, this discovery allows us, in any case, to reaffirm the importance of exchanges between the center of France and the Mediterranean world, in particular Tyrrhenian Etruria.
