Itinerary B
Piazza Armerina

[2] Incense and votive gifts

The smell of incense and other aromatic substances that were burned during the votive offering mingled with the scent coming from the lush vegetation of the garden behind the small temple. In the worship that took place within the domestic walls, the offering usually consisted of a foodstuff, which could be smelled because of its nature, which also followed the seasonal production of the latifundium surrounding the Roman Villa del Casale.
