This is an earthenware candelabrum found in the excavations conducted in Can Palauet (at Carrer d’en Palau, 32-34) in 1994. It is engraved with a ritual scene, possibly a procession with different participants, one of whom may be a priest. The scene is completed with a building, which has been interpreted as the depiction of one of the gateways to the Roman city. This piece was crafted by a local potter in the early days of the city.
