from the excavations of Carmelo Palumbo. They are clay fragments: from the trichrome Neolithic, from the Eneolithic and from the Ancient Bronze Age. During an excursion to the cave by the Archeoclub of Termini Imerese, a beautiful fragment of a keeled bowl with bell-shaped decoration was collected on the surface and is now kept in the Antiquarium of Himera.
