Découverte d'un pied antique en forme de sphinge, à proximité de Chalon-sur-Saône (Saône-et-Loire)

Abstract : A figurative element made out of bronze was discovered in a 2008 evaluation at Fragnes (Saône-et-Loire) near to Chalon-sur-Saône. This very original element was discovered in an untypical context. It is the foot of a vessel in the form of a sphinx with a lion's paw. Even though objects with decorated feet and in particular lion's paws are well known of, the use of the sphinx iconography is rare and even unique in Gaul during this period
