(Galera) Granada, Spain.
An Iberian city near Huescar in NE Granada. The burial chambers in its necropoleis have yielded eight Greek kraters belonging to the group of Polygnotos, of the Munich
Painter, of the Painter of the Battle of the Griffins of
Oxford, and the Painter of the Black Thyrsos; also three
kylikes, two of them Attic (two from the 5th c. B.C., the
other from the 4th), and two pelikes from the beginning
of the 4th c. in the Kertch style. There are also two rectangular urns with animals lying on the covers and scenes on the sides, one of which shows Greek influence. Most of the finds are in the National Archaeological
Museum of Madrid.
