Tripoli. Libya. View of the centre of the museum of a number of different amphorae which were used as cinerary urns. Directly underneath the urns on the lower floor is the most detailed of the rock-cut tombs. The glass showcases around the walls consist of a number of funerary items, storage jars and terracotta lamps, all found on the ancient site. Accidently discovered in 1958 the small museum has been constructed in the middle of an ancient cemetery dating from the first and the fourth centuries AD and incorporates several family and private tombs including early Punic within it. It is located in the outer suburb of Zanzur located 13 kilometres west of central Tripoli on the way to Sabratha.
