13.Believe and santuaries:
There was a tophet and a temple for Baal Hamon. See: Chanoine Leroy, Le temple de Baal-Saturne à Hippone (Bulletin de l’Académie d’Hippone 32, 1912, p.47).  This temple was located in the NW corner of the town on the left riverside of the Wadi Sehun. The remains of many urns and vessels containing cremated bones have been found. A stelae (F 35) with an inversed crescent symbol, a ram and a palm-tree. It seems to be Neopunic (2nd-1st century BC).
Baal Hamon is replaced by Saturn.
Ph.Berger finds a Punic stelae with an image of a goddess (BAC 1896, p.221-222).
