Terra Delyssa



Queen Elyssa is the founder of ancientcarthage modern Tunisia, in 814 BC.

She made olives and olive oil extraction a part of the local culture.

In examining the historic pieces collectedfrom Carthage we were struck by thesimilarity in all coins produced in Carthage between 460BC and 100BC: All coins had the head of the queen Ellysa on one sideand a horse on the other.

In her honor, we named our olive oilTerra Delyssa, The land of Elyssa andchose the horse, carthage's symbol offertility and prosperity as our emblem.
