Although cited in the literature for its five domus de janas, no specialised studies have yet been dedicated to the necropolis of Iscala de Sa Figu, one of the many rock-cut tomb sites in the territory of Usini. Several times reported to the Soprintendenza, the site has recently been surveyed and recorded using various traditional and innovative methods. At this occasion, two additional tombs were discovered and, despite radical rearrangements made inside the tombs in recent centuries, a series of new carved symbols were recorded in tomb V.
