a sample from previous Proceedings can found in:
Thucydides (~500 B.C.) said that the Elymi – founders of Erice – were survivors of the destruction of Troy. Ancient historians agreed that Erice was the oldest city in Europe.
In Erice you can admire the Castle of Venus, the Cyclopean Walls (~800 B.C.) and the Gothic Cathedral (~1300 A.D.). Erice is at present a mixture of ancient and medieval architecture.
