Permanent Exhibition. Room 4

Sit tibi terra levis. Death in Roman times and Late Antiquity (25 BC-600 AD).

Since there was no military conquest, the romanization of Ibiza was a complex and long process where ancient Punic traditions and the new Roman order coexisted for a long time. The progressive romanization of the funerary uses starts to be visible from 200BC on, but especially with the change of era. From Augustus times onwards (31 BC-14 AD), it can be said that Ebusitan burials are fully Roman in their funerary ways. In this sense, burials from Puig des Molins are quite comparable to those from any other Roman necropolis.
