01) The Tomb of Mezzavia

 
This chamber tomb cut into in tufa stone was discovered in the village of Il Passaggio in the vicinity of Mezzavia (Percano) in 1950.
The tomb consists of a single cell with four loculi cut into its side walls and one loculus cut into the far end wall featuring a carving of “tutsitui”. This tomb may be dated back to the Hellenistic period (late 3rd – early 2nd century B.C.).
