Sant'Angelo Muxaro (Sicilian: Sant'Àngilu Muxaru) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Agrigento in the Italian region Sicily, located about 70 kilometres (43 mi) south of Palermo and about 20 kilometres (12 mi) north of Agrigento.
Four gold and silver bowls dating from 650-600 BC were found in a tomb in the vicinity of the village in the 18th Century. Only one gold bowl remains, now in the British Museum's collection. The BM's phiale is decorated with 6 striding bulls and has become a symbol of Sant'Angelo Muxaro.
