Burnt sacrifice of the middle La Tène period was discovered in the mountain region near Slatina nad Bebravou (Slovakia) in 2016. Among Celtic fibulas and parts of belts which can be dated from the second half to the end of the 3rd Century B.C., it contained also fragments of destroyed Greek bronze reliefs. Distinguishable are a male and a female head, parts of weapons, streaming pleats of garments and a naked female breast. Most probably the subject of the representation is an Amazonomachie. In comparison to a pair of bronze reliefs in the British Museum, London, which were found at Siris in the vicinity of Taranto, there are many indications that the Slatina fragments originally also belonged to shoulder reliefs of a cuirass. Like the bronzes from Siris, the reliefs from Slatina can be dated stylistically to the latter half of the 4th Century B.C. and be ascribed with some probability also to a Tarantina workshop. Presumably passing Galatian tribes looted the reliefs in a Panhellenic Greek sanctuary like Delphi and sacrificed them later in Slatina.
