Titel Urns, Tofet, Mozia, Sicily, Italy
Caption Urns containing the remains of human and animal sacrifices, on the Southern border of the Tofet, a 60m long open air sanctuary for rituals and sacrifices, 8th - 6th century BC, in Mozia, a Phoenician island city, Trapani, Sicily, Italy. In 750-550 BC, the tofet was sited separate from the town itself. Mozia was founded in the 8th century BC by the Phoenicians, who built an important city and Carthaginian trade outpost, which thrived until it was overthrown by the Syracuse Greeks in 397 BC. In 1888 the island was rediscovered by Joseph Whitaker, who, through his Fondazione Giuseppe Whitaker, excavated the site and founded the island's museum. Picture by Manuel Cohen, 4217793
