To the southeast of the village of Argandenes (Piloña), in the place known as La Lladrea, the remains of a funerary aedicula, of square ground plant, with many bu-rials surrounding it have been found. Two archaeological campaigns have revealed a complex sequence of burials which start towards the end of the 4th century AD and continues until at least the 7th century AD. This sequence is characterized not only by a significant change in the typology of the burials, found in two different and se-parated phases, or by the numerous extractions, lootings and alterations, and the possibility that some individuals have been buried after the aedicula had fallen to ruins but also by the presence of a very rich repertoire of material finds.
