Abi Chemou Sarcopghagus

Byblos District

· Mount-Lebanon

In the early 1920's, a storm caused a landslide at the archaeological site of Byblos that led to a surprising discovery of a necropolis that housed several beautiful and large sarcophagus of the Phoenician kings of Byblos, known today as the royal necropolis of Byblos.

The sarcophagus of Abi Chemou, the 1st Phoenician King of Byblos known by name to historians, date back to the 17th century BC and is located inside the royal necropolis of the archaeological site of Byblos.
