Path

From Foggia head north-east towards Arpinova. Practically nothing remains of ancient Argyripta, but following the small roads of the area, you will have an idea of the topography of the area. If you ask for information from the local inhabitants, you can visit the Hypogeum of the Medusa, under restoration, but not indicated by any signs.

Return to Foggia and take the road for Ascoli Satriano. After 15 km turn left for Ordona. A sign shows the direction for the excavations of ancient Herdoniae.

Return to the road for Ascoli Satriano, and follow the signs for the Archaeological Park of the Dauni.
