Perennial - Lasting for an indefinately long time, enduring.

There is not much left of the original town of Soluntum built by the Phoenicans in about 700 BC, but a few ruins remain from the Greeks and the Romans. Mostly fragments of walls, foundations and a few mosaics.
You can still see the traces of two ancient roads and the grid pattern of the classical Greek style town.
