Fragment of a mask found in excavations in the temple area of the city

Fragment of terracotta in the form of a face. This piece was found in an excavation of the sacred area of Puig de Sant Andreu, in the cistern which is located in front of the largest temple. 36 more earthenware fragments have been found in the religious area of the city, both in the cistern itself and in the ruins of the two temples. They are interpreted as ex-votos which were hung on the inner walls of the temples, connected with the rites that were carried out within. Studies made to date conjecture that they probably correspond to the depiction of divinities.
