in italiano

Overall, this book is an excellent example of how necessary a multi-disciplinary approach is for the reconstruction—albeit partial—of the history of a such peculiar site. The volume is well organized and includes a useful iconographic apparatus. All of the contributions are well written and, in addition to reporting specific data, they often offer clear explanations of broader issues, making the content understandable even to non-specialists. Finally, the (often very detailed) abstracts in English allow this work to reach a broad international audience. Readers will no doubt eagerly anticipate the results of future excavations in a third volume dedicated to this fascinating and still mysterious site.’ – Andrea Mariani (2022): Speculum vol. 97, issue 2
