Abstract

In this paper, we present the most relevant results of an archaeometric analysis of some objects of the Estrada Collection. It was discovered that a signi!cant number of them were false despite looking authentic from a stylistic point of view. We conclude with the recommendation that museums that accept objects from private collections whose provenance is unknown, should make archaeometric analysis, since these constitute a very reliable way to determine the authenticity of the objects.
