Capestrano Warrior

A symbol of Abruzzi and its identity

Capestrano Warrior was accidentally discovered in summer 1934 during the works in a vineyard, downstream the town it has been named after. The statue was sculpted by Aninis. The character it represents, Naevius Pompuledius, is a man armed with sword, knife, a couple of spears and disc-armor, probably dating back to the 4th-5th century BC.
