A short-lived settlement (725 to 550 BC) in the Albegna Valley, known mainly from its tombs. One of its attached settlements was probably located at Uliveto di Banditella where, in spite of poor preservation, terrace walls were found with dating material. The tombe a circolo (trench tombs surrounded by a circle of travertine slabs) are the most distinctive and rich. The Circolo degli Avori contained a famous writing tablet, as well as numerous ivories and military equipment. Other graves (particularly fossa) have been found at the locations of Uliveto and Fontin Piccolo.
