The Project

The Project Domus: live in Ilici pretends to act in the sector 4F of the hill, north of the current museum, in the space situated between the two domus (roman houses) excavated partially in the sectors 3F and 5F, that conserves presumably an intact stratigraphy in one of the most emblematic sectors of the city, occupied by rich domestic structures Romans of aristocratic character, and of the that proceeds an important group of ceramics of style Elche-Archena of big size, in concrete more than 40 pithoi and kalathoi decorated, with copies so famous like the known kalathos of Tanit (commonly known like  glass of “it it Pepona” by his frontal representation); of the same zone proceeds equally the famous mosaic helenístico of Sailacos, that shows the acculturation of the inhabitants of the yacimiento that write his names iberos already in Latin), as well as the prehistoric materials more ancient of the yacimiento. This sector conserves one of the sequences estratigráficas wider of the urban centre and has provided levels altomedievales that would allow to explain the abandonment of the city in the context of the islamización and of the Pact of Teodomiro, before the foundation of the current Elche.
