The Daymun is a Roman family mausoleum that dates from the 4th century. It is part of the archaeological remains of the old city of Murgi, specifically the necropolis, and was an enclave used at the time as a private funerary building.

The mausoleum is square and semi-subterranean, the interior of which has a Greek cross layout along with three vaulted niches in its walls that delimit their ends.

This monument was listed in 2008 in the General Catalog of Andalusian Historical Heritage as an Asset of Cultural Interest. This mausoleum is one of the best examples of Roman funerary architecture in the province of Almeria and is also considered a faithful testimony to the socio-religious practices of classical culture.
