Abstract
We present the discovery of new terracotta figurines of bovids from the Argaric settlement of Laderas del Castillo. Their presence in Bronze Age sites is no longer an anomaly, and allows us to reopen the debate on the iconoclastic character of El Argar and its connection with the Mediterranean world.

Keywords
