Upbeat Times in Segesta, Italy!


Segesta was one of the major cities of the Elymians, one of the

three indigenous peoples

of Sicily. The other major cit- ies of the Elymians were Eryx and Entella. It is located in the northwestern part of Sicily in Italy, near the modern com- mune of Calatafimi-Segesta in the province of Trapani. “Segesta (or Egesta) was an important trading town from the 7th century BCE onwards. Situated on the strategically advantageous slopes of Mt. Barbaro, yet still close enough to the coast to support a trading port, Segesta established itself as the most important regional town of the Elymi people.” Says Mark Cartwritght of about Segesta.

After no news or TV for 3 weeks it was over- whelming when I turned on the car radio on Monday, had to turn it off. ~ Frank Griffo, Sr. of Petaluma, CA.
