There should be another site with traces of the Lower Paleolithic (different from Riparo Longo):

Note: Table 2 on p. 629 of book 100 shows two distinct sites: 56, Agira, lower paleolithic and 57 Agira, Riparo Longo

Point 56 would also appear to be reported (with the number 77) in table 3 (100.631) as a site belonging to Neolithic (Stentinello culture). Check if point 77 of table 3 (100.631) is connected with the Plain of Caramitia indicated in 202.10 but which should be south of Agira and not north))
