Long Description:
[Picture taking is not permitted in this museum]

The Roman era brought great prosperity to Antequera (named "the Ancient City", or Antikaria, by them).

The pride of the Museo Municipal is the elegant and athletic 1.4m bronze statue of a boy, Efebo . Discovered on a local farm in the 1950s, it is possibly the finest example of Roman sculpture found in Spain.

The museum also displays some pieces from a Roman villa in Antequera, where a superb group of mosaics was discovered in 1998.
