The 'investigation, in the western sector, has enabled the discovery of a natural rock rock used as a quarry for the area of ​​bare limestone blocks for the construction of walls in square work that, in the upper part of the city overlaps with polygonal walls , forming with them a whole in the center of defense. They were also found numerous fragments of pottery, mainly amphorae; very interesting by the discovery of an ancient rodia a relevant loop in which a rectangular cartouche is legible stamp referring to the name of the manufacturer. In the eastern sector was instead identified the area chosen for the development of an urban necropolis of the imperial age who used the limestone bench as a shelf for the accommodation of the various tombs, arranged at different heights due to the inhomogeneity of the rocky floor, sometimes chiseled to make so that the rock adhered better to the profile of the body. The layout of the excavation suggests exactly as you had a high concentration of inhumation burials (46) related to two different moments of occupation of the necropolis.

The analysis of the tombs in the necropolis of St. Nicholas used to determine how they are grouped into two different types:

- Graves earthy, single, multiple and multiple;

- Capuchin tombs, single, multiple or multiple coverage with flat or sloping, often marked externally by bachelors limestone.

The 'analysis of the grave goods, for the most part placed internally, allows you to determine how the characters placed inside the tombs belonged to the lower middle class; they are fragments of pottery, blown glass and bronze coins and rings made of bronze, iron nails, polychrome mosaic tiles, occasional game pieces, needles or pins in the bone ridges smooth and spherical or rectangular vague on necklaces or bracelets. Their examination allows us to classify chronologically the imperial necropolis in the locality of St. Nicholas in the middle Imperial (second century AD)
