In late-classical Taranto of the late fifth century BC it was customary to bury the deceased together with personal ornaments, such as metal objects of various titles, including the jewels that characterized female burials. Funeral furniture was a way of exhibiting wealth, emphasizing the social prestige of the deceased.
