MEDEINA
House of Sixteen Bases
Medeina, Tunisia


Medeina, Tunisia


This building is named after the unusual reliefs on the bases of the inner portico. Each of them has its own unique relief, of which some show human bodies or faces.
They do slightly resemble tombstones of the tophet at Carthage, and may belong to a Punic cult involving child sacrifice.
