MODALITÀ DI OCCUPAZIONE E INTERVENTI DI RIEDIFICAZIONE AI MARGINI DEL TERRITORIO ABELLANO IN ETÀ FLAVIA. NOTE PER UNA RIFLESSIONE TOPOGRAFICA

Written by  Paola Carfora Dic 05, 2019

The results of a topographical research carried out in the northwestern territory Abella’s "agro" show the type of population during the first century AD, the distribution of productive settlements in its "agro". While a first revision of the archaeological data deriving from the ancient Abella’s city seems to mark, despite the epigraphic documentation, a lack of historical evidence of the first imperial age, apparently the topographical data collected in the countryside do not seem to suggest the abandonment of the productive sites between the 1st century BC and the early Augustan age, but rather their vitality and persistence over time. Some archaeological data seem to demonstrate not only the continuation of production on the sites, but also a renovation activity of the buildings following the earthquake of 62 AD and of the eruption of 79 AD which certainly struck the territories of Abella as documented epigraphically in the nearby town of Nola.
