The tomb of Archimedes
In the northeast corner of the Archaeological Park there is a long street strewn with graves from the Greek, Roman and Byzantine periods, which were carved into the limestone cliffs here. Among them there is also the famous "tomb of Archimedes", which can be recognized easily by its gabled façade. According to legend, the famous mathematician, who died during the Roman siege of Syracuse in 212 B.C., is buried here. However, even the Roman writer Cicero noted that Archimedes was buried in front of the gate to Agrigento. The supposed grave of Archimedes is a Roman columbarium from the 1st Century A.D.
