MEDMA (Rosarno) Bruttium, Calabria, Italy.

On the W coast, ca. 43 km N of Reggio Calabria. The history of the settlement, founded from Lokroi Epizephyrioi, is little known. Remains of several sanctuaries have been reported from the site, and recent work has revealed remains of the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Especially important is the deposit of terracotta votive statuettes found at Piano delle Vigne in 1912 and 1913.
