Summary (English)

  • The excavation of Vigna Marini Vitalini has resumed in 2015 with the re-opening and enlargement of Area 2 towards NW. The team excavated some rooms located NE and SW of a space interpreted as an open courtyard (E3) with a pool in the middle which is connected to a well and two cisterns (1 and 2). The fill of cistern 2 was very rich in finds of the Early Imperial period (late 1st and first half of the 2nd c. AD). Stone and terracotta drains were also uncovered, along with an underground conical structure made of ashlar masonry (H), very similar to archaic cisterns excavated at Veii. The fill of H was very rich of artifacts of the late 1st and early 2nd c. AD.
    Under the floor level of the later building phases were uncovered remains of Archaic occupation, in particular a small quarry that was filled up with soil and debris in the late Archaic period and covered by a foundation wall, in a similar fashion to what happened in the neighboring Vigna Parrocchiale for the construction of the temple.
