||This stone block from Bugibba Temple is unique in having relief of fish. Its size is 94 cm (3 feet) long, 45 cm (1.5 feet) wide, and 29 cm (11.5 inches) high. It has been difficult to determine with accuracy the species to which these fish belong. They might, according to Dr J.R. Baldacchino, represent Sargus Rondeleti Cuv., which is common in the sea around Malta. He also states that the different sizes and markings of the specimens might have been meant to indicate different stages in the growth of the species.
