parietal linear signs

vieste

In Riparo Ruggieri there are linear incisions arranged in groups of two or three vertical marks, parallel and subparallel, which do not exceed 10 cm in length. Sometimes the incision is deep in the middle portion and thinning at the ends. Included are some groups of radiating lines that have originated from a rock crevice.

The Riparo di Macchione is a small context of engraved lines, with pairs of parallel and subparallel incisions similar to those of Riparo Ruggieri.

Riparo Sfinalicchio presents a repertoire of linear marks similar to the previous two.

Relative chronology
Upper Generic Paleolithic

Many artistic products, originating either from poorly documented contexts or with attributes which cannot, with certainty, be ascribed to a particular cultural context, have been placed under this chrono-cultural definition.
