Characteristic of this necropolis they are the vases cinerari with the cover surmounted by a sphere by to interpret as an attempt to give an anthropomorphous form to the vase.
At the end of the VIII century a.C. the necropolises increase of number and of extension on the two shores of the Albegna (Knoll Pancotta, Great Lawn, Sterpeti, Field of the Flushes, Pian of Palm, Strut, Casali, Crostoli). It is not known if this phenomenon were tied up only to a development of the urban center or also to a shed inhabited area in the surrounding territory.
