RAGUSA SUPERIORE is the new town, where efficiency has pragmatically taken over the place from the church bourgeoisie in the name of transformation.
But almost as if the tradition wanted to compensate for the renovations, the history of these places is told here through the Museo Archeologico Regionale Ibleo.
The museum occupies the first floor of the Palazzo Mediterraneo in via Natalelli. There are dedicated sections for the prehistoric period, Camarina, Sicilian archaic and classical dwellings, Hellenistic centres, and late Roman settlements. The stele dedicated to the Warrior of Castiglione, on display in the section of the Sicilian dwellings, is very interesting and valuable.
It commemorates the soldier Pirrinoi who probably was a lookout for Castiglione on the Iblei Mountains, in order to protect Camarina city around the sixth century D.C. It is a bas relief on a single sheet of local limestone, depicting an armed warrior on horseback. The importance of this find lies in the incision in Greek characters in a Doric dialect, that makes us think about an indigenous character.
