Burial urn from Carthage (modern Tunisia) north Africa, 5th century BCE. A vessel for sacrificial ashes. This urn comes from a religious precinct in Carthage known as the Tophet. Often a funerary stela was set up over the urn: an example with a dedication to Baal is in the British Museum. The style of the jar owes nothing to the traditions of North Africa, but can be traced back to Canaan in the late second millennium BCE.
