Calvatone Polichne

Part of the objects found in the ancient town are on display at the Platina Museum in the Municipality of Piadena; some think that the original of the Winged Victory, found here in 1836, is the one kept at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow.
Betriacum or Bedriacum is the name of an ancient Roman vicus near the Municipality of Calvatone (CR). Today, the Roman town is not visible anymore, but it stood on the right bank of the Oglio river in defence of a river passage. The Municipality of Calvatone boasts bimillenary origins, ascribable to the vanished community of Bedriaco, archaeological site of remarkable size and significance in Northern Italy. Bedriaco comes from Bedriacum, a name used by the Roman historian Tacitus who, in his Historiae, tells about two battles of Bedriaco, in 69 A.D.
