To be identified with the Grotta del Romano "comfortable receptacle of a barrel" mentioned by Massa (II, p.343). It is a cave of marine origin still reached today by the sea in storm surges. The cavity develops with a single environment parallel to the coast. In the front
there is a beach, on the right a clandestine excavation, in the red earth, it seems sterile. At the bottom of the room, almost dark, I have collected about twenty clay fragments datable to the Eneolithic and the Middle Bronze Age. F ° 249 III NO, Capo Rama; UTM: UC29702250, Height: m 2,
