The present paper focuses on the trigōnon retrieved from Grave II. Only the sound box and one arm (the pillar) of the instrument have survived. In the organological study which follows, the find is evaluated in the light of the available iconography and literature, and of ancient and modern ethnological parallels. A replica was constructed in order to test the results of the analysis.

Il testo qui presentato si concentra sul trigōnon ritrovato nella Tomba II. Dello strumento si sono conservati soltanto la cassa di risonanza e un braccio (il sostegno principale). Nello studio organologico che segue, il reperto è valutato alla luce sia dell’iconografia e della letteratura disponibili, sia di paralleli etnologici antichi e moderni. Inoltre per sperimentare i risultati dell’analisi si è proceduto a costruire una replica dello strumento antico.
