Erice (TP)

Eryx is located on the top of a solitary mountain that dominates the west side of Sicily. It is the ancient site of the sanctuary of Astarte and one of the towns of the Elimians. The Phoenicians payed honour to the goddess whenever their ships touched Sicily. Later the Romans brought the cult of the goddess, which they called Venus, to Rome as the Venus Ericina.
