This round antique dish with simple and robust contours, featuring a slight rim and a base with a slight bulge that extends outward all the way around, dates back to the time of the Ancient Carthaginian civilization.

Considering its age, this useful object is still in a very good state of preservation.

The word “Punic” comes from the Latin “Punicus” or “Poenicus,” derived from the name “Poenus,” meaning Carthaginian. This word itself comes from the Greek “Φοῖνιξ / Phoînix,” which means both “Phoenician” and “Carthaginian.”
