Musti Baptismal Font
Cioffi, Paul L., 1928-2004
In North Africa, along the edge of the road from Le Kef to Dougga, stand the Roman and Byzantine remains of Musti (El Krib). Originally, the road passed under the triumphal arch, but when it was widened the road had to be built next to the arch, separating it from the Byzantine fortress. Nearby are Roman temples dedicated to Ceres, Apollo and Pluto and a small 4th C. Christian basilica with three naves and a raised area set apart as its baptistery. The circular baptismal font is designed for immersion and has three concentric rings of steps.June 1984
