Archaeological Treasures Revealed in Greece

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)     Excavations at the “Egnatia Odos SA” construction site near the city of Kavala have brought to light impressive archaeological finds dating from the years of the Roman Empire. Two human and 16 horse skeletons were revealed during the works. Experts believe that the finds are part of a Roman cemetery for wealthy inhabitants, since the act of burial of humans close to their horse was frequent among the prosperous. Other significant finds include four bronze coins dating from the 4th century A.D. as well as two-wheel vehicles (probably used in battle or for hunting) that bears relief representations of Hercules’ exploits.
