Ghirza: Mausoleum South-C

Ghirza: Roman town in Libya, one of the main archaeological sites of the country.

Ghirza: Mausoleum South-C

Ghirza's South Cemetery, which is about two kilometer west of the town itself, is less impressive than the North Cemetery. Still, Mausoleum-A and Mausoleum-NN are quite well-preserved. There were several other mausoleums, but from these monuments, only the foundations have survived.

Below, however, you can see the splendid relief from Mausoleum C, which is now in Tripoli's Museum of the Jamahirjia. To the left, we can see four people plowing with dromedaries and one with a hoe; to the far left (click on th picture), a person has started to sow. The other relief shows a caravan of dromedaries, accompagnied by a man, a child, and a goat.
