The Lebrija Candelabra date from the end of the 7th century BC. They are a set of six candelabra from the pre-Roman period which were used by the Tartessian people, the name by which the Greeks knew the first civilisation of the West. Heir to the megalithic culture of the Iberian southwest, the Tartessian culture developed in the triangle formed by the present-day provinces of Huelva, Seville and Cadiz, on the southwest coast of the Iberian Peninsula. The candelabra were almost certainly made in an Etruscan workshop, and may have been brought to Tartessos as part of a trade exchange.
