ONE of the archaeological treasures from Almuñecar, the Apofis Vase, has returned to the Axarquia town from New York after being featured at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Called ‘From Assyria to Iberia: Crossing Continents at the Dawn of the Classical Age,’ the exhibition opened in September of 2014 and gathered archaeological remains from 14 different countries and 41 museums around the world.
The Apofis Vase is an Egyptian funerary object, sculpted from a single piece of marble, with hieroglyphs and a royal seal engraved on it.
Councillor for Culture, Olga Ruano, stressed the rich historical heritage of the town and encouraged all residents to visit the local Museum Cueva de Siete Palacios, where they will be able to admire the vase and the rest of items of the museum’s collection.
