The Montefortini tumulus in Comeana is the monument that best testifies to the economic and cultural development that, in the Orientalizing period, affected the territory of the middle Valdarno controlled by the centre of Artimino. The precious ivory and glass objects are particularly significant. The pottery, produced by specific craftsmanship, is testified by the impasto urns, partially inspired by the productions of Volterra, the bucchero ware, as the engraved and stamped cups and stemmed plates, censers, and the bowls with perforated handles.
