IPOGEO DI CRISPIA SALVIA

 
Hypogeum of Crispia Salvia

In the area of the Punic necropolis there is the hypogeum of Crispia Salvia (end II – IV century. A.D.), a funerary chamber with six depositions and completely painted walls, reached through an entrance passage with steps dug into the rock. The hypogeum is identifiable by an epigraph with which Iulius Demetrius dedicated his thoughts to his wife Crispia Salvia who died at the age of forty-five. The painted decoration is made up of a scene with five figures leaning towards a sitting flute player, a scene of a funeral banquet, four peacocks of which two on high Kalathoi(chests), full of fruit and flowers and on the wall in front of the entrance there are two winged figures who are holding a festoon
