MONTE PIOMBONE
   An Archaic site of about four hectares on a tuff hill (278 meters above sea level), 2.5 kilometers to the east of Acquarossa, near the Vezza River, a tributary of the middle Tiber River. The site appears to have been occupied from the Middle Bronze Age (except perhaps the Final Bronze Age) until the sixth century BC at a time very similar to that of Acquarossa, to which it may have been subordinate. A similar sequence is visible at Castellonchio, Poggio di Sermugnano, and Civita del Fosso di Arlena.
