Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 47 Echetla

The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: town in E Sicily. In 263 BC Appius Claudius Caudex unsuccessfully laid siege to Echetla. While the Barrington Atlas does not offer a precise location, some scholars (viz. G. Falco in New Pauly) associate the ancient site with the ruins on the hill of Occhiolà near Grammichele. The remains of a sanctuary dedicated to Demeter have been excavated there.
