This small Archaic settlement (370 meters above sea level) on a tuff promontory, which was located to the east of the Vico Lake (Monte Cimini), differs from other sites of this area of Etruria in not being placed at the confluence of two streams. The site was probably occupied continuously throughout the Bronze Age, abandoned temporarily in the early Iron Age, and reoccupied in the eighth century BC. The seventh-century and sixth-century finds from the chambered tombs of the Cupa cemetery are particularly rich and include bucchero, Etrusco-corinthian, and Etruscan black and red figure pottery. Occupation of the site continued down to at least the second century BC.
