Tombs and sarcophagi
This Punic necropolis is near the Antonine Baths, about 2 km from the center of the ancient city of Carthage. The Phoenicians built their cemeteries outside the city walls (although close), establishing with them their territorial limit. They believed in life after death but reserved a separate place for their dead, without being mixed with that of the living. The bodies were embalmed and put into sarcophagi. The tombs of this ancient Phoenician cemetery are within the Bardo Museum.
