A limestone mountain above the Val di Chiana that provided a focus of Final Bronze Age and earlier settlement on its flanks (Casa Carletti), in caves (e.g., Antro della Noce, Grotta Lattaia), and on its summit (Vetta). Later Archaic settlement appears to have clustered at a lower altitude around the mountain (Cancelli).
