Volubilis was a city of ancient Mauretania, with a Carthaginian presence since the 3rd c. BCE, later the western capital of Juba II and then a Roman municipium; its stone was later quarried for the construction of nearby Moulay Idriss and Meknes.

On the right of the so-called Charonion stands a (badly-weathered) smaller draped figure which appears to wear a calathus, a lily-shaped basket of a type carried in processions in honor of Demeter.

 

According to the sixth-century chronicler Malalas, the Charonion was carved in an attempt to save Antioch from a plague. After many people had perished from the illness, a seer named Leios commanded that a great "mask" be carved out of the mountain overlooking the city, "and inscribing something on it he put an end to the pestilential death. This mask the people of Antioch call the Charonion."

 

The name Charonion may indicate that the carving was intended to represent a deity of the underworld who needed to be appeased to bring to an end the plague that had sent so many souls to Charon (boatmen on the river Styx).

Granite, marble, and opus caementicium.

Probably a seat of the Imperial cult; it has nothing to do with Diana.

The so-called 'Nekromanteion' (Oracle of the Dead) of Ephyra/Acheron in Epirus, Greece; now generally accepted to be a Hellenistic fortified farmstead. In the 18th c. (CE), a monastery of Agios Ioannis Prodromos (St. John the Baptist) was built over it.

Built before 138 CE in honor of a visit by the emperor, but rebuilt in the 4th century. The elaborate carving is just phenomenal.
