Around Dougga there are the remains of some mosaics, which not yet been removed and exhibited in Bardo Musuem (Dougga).
Of statues very little remains. You actually have to go to Bardo for this too. One headless statue stands along the road leading to the Capitol (lower photo).
Far more stones with inscriptions can be found. These are far less visually impressive, try to read on some of them. It is quite seldom that you stumble on scriptures this old, isn't it?
