Melone II of Sodo is located on the right bank of the
Rio di Loreto.
This burial site too may be dated back to the archaic
period and consists of two separate inner tombs: the
Tomb I featuring a pseudo-vault roofing was unearthed
in 1928/9; the Tomb II was discovered in 1991 and contained
a real wealth of golden grave goods.
In 1990 excavations brought to light on the east side
of the of the mound perimeter a monumental altar-platform
accessed by means of a stairway whose side-walls are
decorated with reliefs and sculptural groups.
