Satyrion, about 12 km south-east of Laconian Taras, is one of the most important contexts for understanding the early Greek presence in Southern Italy and the dynamics between natives and colonists. The excavations carried out in 2011 by the Sapienza - University of Rome at the ‘acropolis’, on the promontory overlooking Porto Perone and Porto Saturo, discovered new structural remains and a rich votive deposit. The findings confirm that between the end of the 8th and the beginning of the 7th c. B.C. the small site, occupied by a Iapigian settlement, underwent a functional change and became a monumentalized Greek sanctuary, functioning until the 4th c. B.C.
