“I Pini di Sirolo” is the only archeological site within the Marche region featuring the remains of a Picene necropolis. Among other graves discovered, a monumental circular tomb named the Tomb of the Queen of Sirolo (6th century B.C.) stands out – specifically, the largest noble circle tomb ever discovered.
Two chariots (a curricle and a calash) were found inside the tomb, as well as the remains of two mules and numerous ornamental objects, furnishings, and household utensils.
Part of such lavish artifacts is exhibited at the State Antiquarium of Numana, while the Conero Natural Park visitors center features a reconstruction of the Tomb of the Queen.
