Palatine Tables

The Palatine Tables (Tavole Palatine in italian) are a temple dedicated to Hera, whose original appearance can be guessed easily. Indeed, five of the entablature surmounted columns are still visible. They are located in Metaponto, which stood on the territory of the present Bernalda in the province of Matera, not far from the Ionian coast, in the archaeological site; was one of the most flourishing cities of Greater Greece (Magna Graecia). Its importance is shown by the fact that it was built a theater, four temples, ruins now preserved by the Archaeological Park.
