In the Roman era, the dead were often buried near roads in the outskirts of the city. This 1st-century funeral monument, located next to what is now the N-340 carriageway, is the most famous tomb in the Tarragona region. Shaped like a tower, it was once topped by a pyramid that has since been lost. Today, three segments remain, rising to a collective height of 9.17 metres. The central segment includes an inscription underscored by a depiction of two figures in high relief, representing the funeral god Attis. The third segment is decorated with a low relief of two figures, almost certainly depicting the persons buried within.
