Greek god of love and sex riding a dolphin among artefacts unearthed from ancient city’s temple

For the first time, artifacts dating back over 2,000 years from a Greek ancient city have been identified.

The Amalfi coast of Italy has unearthed terracotta bulls heads and an Eros figurine, the Greek God of Love and Sex, riding a Dolphin.

Three huge temples were located in the city, each with towering Doric column that is a feature of many ancient Greece structures such as Athens’ Parthenon.

Paestum, located near Pompeii archaeological site, dates back to the 5th century BC.


Around 275 BC, it was under Roman rule.

The Italian Culture Ministry officials stated that the discoveries shed new light on religious life in ancient cities.

Seven bull heads were placed on a temple’s altar as an apparent act of devotion.

The Eros statuette is from a family known as the Avilis. Their presence in Paestum was unknown before.

Archaeologists are hoping to discover more artifacts on the site where excavations began in 1950.

The COVID pandemic has caused the work to be put on hold.
