Phoenician tombs and an inscribed stela were discovered last month in Motya, western Sicily, during an excavation by the Sapienza University of Rome Expedition.Out of the graves, 10 percent were accompanied by stelae or inscriptions. One inscription indicated that its grave was likely the resting place of an important priest or perhaps the ruler of Motya. The stela was found underneath a tower of Motya's earliest city wall, which Sapienza University has been excavating over the last two years. The rich history of the island has justified 39 excavation seasons since 1964 .Nigro's team works each year on excavation and restoration, uncovering the monuments of the ancient Phoenician city.
