Discovery in the 60s of last century, the catacomb is accessed from the east side of the hill Monte Stallone.

The Hypogeum has five short tunnels and a cubicle mainly occupied by graves at burial niche; also the walk floor was used for burials. The tombs were sealed by tiles or bricks and mortar and the wall surfaces were coated with a layer of simple white or colored plaster.

The general characteristics of the monument  refer to the fourth century, with a continuity of life that reaches up to the fifth century.
