In the swamp which constitutes the Punta Lingua and that is, the Eastern extremity of the island of Salina (swamp which was one used as a saltpan from which, in fact, the island derives its present name) exist remains of ancient buildings, which at the end of the XVIII century appeared with evidence above ground and which today are interned and no longer visible on the surface.
They are walls of the most typical "opus reticulatum" of the I-II century A.D., belonging to a construction of Imperial Roman Age, which existed near the North Western margin of the ex Salina and probably extended also beyond it to the foot of the slope behind. The higher part was destroyed during last two centuries, the lower buried part is still preserved, as the best evidence of the Roman Age.
