- CASTELNUOVO DI BERARDENGA
- An important Archaic site (located in Piano Tondo) on the boundary between the territories of Arezzo and Volterra that was very similar in date and structure to Murlo. Unfortunately, compared with Murlo, the site is very damaged by agricultural work. The site was also destroyed by fire in antiquity. A burial site of similar period has been found at the nearby location of Il Poggione. This latter burial contains late Orientalizing finds of Murlo type: ceramic calices suported by female caryatids, blue paste glass vases, Etrusco-Corinthian balsamari, and two inscriptions. These rich seventh- and sixth-century BC finds exhibit the combined ideologies of the warrior and the banquet or symposium.
