After a first attempt to survey the laser scanner, the survey, aimed at the graphic documentation and implementation of a virtual model for the study and dissemination, has been performed with photographic processed with software modeling structure from motion.
3D model in mesh made with the appropriate software has been cleaned of all its impurities: holes, tips, noise and rough surfaces. To conclude the process, the mapping from photography, with high resolution textures, giving the mesh the appearance next to the real funerary urn. The survey work on the urn of Oenomaus is a case in point, both for research of best practices in the surveys of archaeological objects, both in the ultimate goal of the relief: not only cataloging and knowledge, but also of divulging to a wider public.
