Silius Italic and Aelian, transmit a double burial ritual among Celtiberos: "... are buried in the fire to die of disease ..., but those who die in war ... throw them to the vultures, they consider as sacred animals "

The second ritual is documented in a ceramic Numancia. The bodies were exposed to vultures, considered as an intermediary between gods and men (psychopomps) as the body transported to fleshing his mind directly to the Hereafter.
