About 5 km SE of
Denia, sometimes arbitrarily identified with ancient
Alonai. In the parish of La Lluca was found a treasure
consisting of a diadem, a fibula, and chains, all of gold,
and a silver bracelet (4th c. B.C.). From other spots have
come amphorae, Punic coins, and Roman objects, notably
a marble relief of a horseman preceded by a man wearing a toga and followed by a soldier with shield and
spear (Aracil Collection, Javea). On Punta del Arenal
the remains of a fishery have yielded architectural fragments and ceramic material.
