Materials from Seleucia in the Palazzo Madama’s collections

Turin, Palazzo Madama, December 2013 - August 2015


The collections of Palazzo Madama include over 3,000 artefacts (sealings, pottery, terracotta figurines, elements of architectural decoration, glasses, coins, small bone and metal objects) that were found during the first Italian archaeological missions at Seleucia on the Tigris and brought to Turin thanks to the laws in effect at that time in Iraq. On the occasion of its fiftieth anniversary, the Centro Scavi di Torino decided to present to the visitors of the Museum a selection of these objects, now displayed in a case in a room of the basement.
