In 1957, during an excavation campaign in Contrada Mango of Segesta, Vincenzo Tusa found two lithic fragments of miniaturistic architectural elements, belonging to a Doric frieze and a Doric horizontal geison. In this contribution, as well as offering a detailed analysis of the two fragments, we will try to put forward some hypotheses on the context of their production, on their function and on their reference monument, with a rapid examination of the problems linked to the architectural paradeigmata in the antiquity.
