Summary (English)

  • The 2015 excavations concentrated on several sectors opened during the two previous campaigns and on new zones of interest determined by the results from the geophysical campaign undertaken in 2013. The first of these areas (Omega) is situated close to the fence that separates the archaeological area from the modern access road to the site. In this sector, the remains of a quadrangular building and a fountain with a semicircular exedra were identified, elements that suggest the presence of an important monumentalised public space.A trench (Omicron) was opened to the south which brought to light another section of the road E-F, identified in previous years in the southern part of the excavation area (Beta).

    In this sector, work continued in an effort to resolve several questions left unanswered during previous years. Three adjacent rooms were uncovered (Gamma II, III and IV), which formed part of the large structure next to the basalt road identified during the first excavation campaign. The rooms, sealed by layers of collapse from the walls, presented stratigraphy relating to the abandonment phases of the area dating to between the imperial period and the 7th century A.D. A terrace wall was exposed in the zone uphill between areas Gamma and Alfa (Delta) that was in context with the layers dating to no later than the 1st-2nd century A.D. This was of particular interest as it was part of the overall layout in this sector of the city in the early imperial period.
