Tempio di Antas


The temple is an example of the tri-partition system typically present in Punic religious buildings; its atrium and penetralia are divided by an intermediate space.
The structure was partially modified by the Romans sometime during the I century B.C. but all of the features typical of a Punic temple were maintained.
The temple is situated on a base with a flight of stairs leading to the entrance.  The pronaos has four big columns (tetra-style) upholding the main beam that contains the famous inscription: TEMP(lum) (SA)RDI PATRIS BAB(ai) meaning Sardus Pater Babai’s Temple (Sardinian-Roman god that came from the Sardinian-Punic one named Sir Addir Babai) dedicated to Emperor Caracalla.
