Donation another in a long line of contributions from the Sagarra family

Wednesday 12th September 2018

JAVEA NEWS | Roman Amphora

The Soler Blasco Municipal Museum has been donated a Roman amphora and ceramic jug made between the 1st and 3rd centuries CE. The two ancient pieces were handed over to the museum by Josep Segarra Marí in the presence of councillor Quico Moragues (Culture) and municipal archaeologist Joaquim Bolufer.

The amphora, of Andalusian origin, was recovered from the bottom of the sea by the Segarra family during the 1940s whilst the jug, which is probably from Ibiza, was found by Josep Segarra Llamas in the vicinity of the Punta de la Fontana.

Councillor Moragues thanked the family for the important donation which continues a line of contributions by the Segarra family to the municipal museum of Xàbia since 1987.

The Soler Blasco Municipal Museum is located in the heart of the historic centre of the town just a few steps from the church square and the Tourist Info office. The story of Xàbia is told across three floors of one of the town's most historic buildings from prehistory through Roman and Islamic occupation to the Christian re-conquest and the golden era of the raisin industry.

The museum is currently open Tuesday to Friday from 10.00am to 1.00pm and then 5.00pm to 8.00pm and at the weekends and fiesta days from 10.00am to 1.00pm (except Christmas Day and New Year's Day). Admission is totally free and during September there are guided tours of the museum in English on Tuesday 18th and Thursday 20th at 11.00am.

La donación fue de la familia Segarra

El museo de Xàbia recibe la donación de una ánfora romana y una jarra de cerámica de entre los siglos I y III. Las dos piezas han sido entregadas por Josep Segarra Marí en un acto en que también estuvieron presentes el concejal de Cultura, Quico Moragues, y el arqueólogo municipal, Joaquim Bolufer.

La ánfora, de origen andaluz, se recuperó del fondo del mar al canal de Ibiza y fue adquirida por la familia Segarra en los años 40 del siglo XX, mientras que la jarrita – de manufactura ibicenca probablemente – fue encontrada por Josep Segarra Llamas en la Punta de la Fontana.

Quico Moragues quiso agradecer especialmente esta importante donación, que continúa la línea de aportaciones de la familia Segarra al museo de Xàbia desde 1987.
