AbstractThe Necropolis of Carmona (Seville, Spain), used during the first and second centuries AD, is one of the most significant Roman burial sites in southern Spain. With more than 600 tombs, the Circular Mausoleum is one of the best examples of a tomb affected by different decay mechanisms. The alteration patterns are varied and abundant, including host-rock fragmentation, loss of materials (mineral disintegration), surface modifications (efflorescences, crusts of various typologies) and biological colonization (mainly bacteria, algae and lichens). The different pathologies observed are discussed to the light of environmental parameters.
