Punic Town of Kerkuane and its Necropolis - Tunesia

This Phoenician city was probably abandoned during the First Punic War (c. 250 B.C.) and as a result was not rebuilt by the Romans. 
The remains constitute the only example of a Phoenicio-Punic city to have survived. 
The houses were built to a standard plan in accordance with a sophisticated notion of town planning.
