This funeral monument, located just off the former Via Augusta, 6 km outside Tarragona heading toward Barcelona, was built out of large ashlars, has a square floor plan and dates back to the first quarter of the 1st century A.D. The structure comprises three stacked segments. The first segment consists of a square base. The second segment includes two sculpted figures (probably representing the funeral divinity Attis), as well as a dedicatory inscription. The third and uppermost segment, which is partially conserved, is made up of simple arches that shelter a bas-relief depicting two figures. The crown, which was perhaps pyramidal in shape, has been lost.
