DIANIUM INSULA (Giannutri) Etruria, Italy.

Originally called Artemision, the island, cited by Pliny (HN 3.81), was inhabited from the Stone Age but particularly during the Roman era. There are notable remains of a Roman villa, with rich living quarters, a bath complex, stores, cisterns, and harbor equipment at Cala Maestra and at Cala Scirocco. (See also Shipwrecks.)
