Segesta, called Egesta by the Greeks and Segesta by the Romans, was with Erice and Entella one of the most advanced centres of Elymian civilization.
Unfortunately very little is known of this population of Elymians. According to Thucydides they were a combination of the Trojans and Phocaeans who mixed with the Sicans of W Sicily.
The city stood on a vast plateau between the two peaks of Monte Barbaro in a naturally well defended position. Very little is however known about it: it was probably built between the 5th and 4th c. BC with a regular grid layout, surrounded by walls of the classic or Hellenistic age.
