(Zalamea de la Serena) Badajoz, Spain.
Between Don Benito and Belmez. It is not mentioned
by ancient geographers, but its Roman name is given in
II, 2352. Remains include a Roman cistern and a distyle funerary monument. The cistern forms part of a
longitudinal suite of rooms separated by a double arch;
the surviving portion is more than 10 m long, and its maximum depth is 4.44 m. The sepulchral monument, of the
1st or 2d c. A.D., is of a type well known in Syria: a
podium with two columns which probably supported a
section of architrave. The upper part of the monument,
which is missing, would have measured ca. 24 m.
