Roman tomb found at Delphi

Roman tomb found at Delphi

Under the hill of Tsoúka near the settlement of Stromi in Phocida, the grave chamber.

Although the tomb has been altered, a study carried out on the skeleton remains has shown in its result that at least they were made three burials in this place during Roman times, between the 1st centuries BC. and I A.D. Among the offerings that have been found, in the burials there are vessels, plates, perfume bottles, lamps and even coins.

In the zone covered by pine and oak trees Visible remains of fortifications had already been discovered, so their archaeological importance was already known, but despite several excavations on the hill, this area had not yet been explored.

To carry out the proper cleaning and conservation, the objects have been transferred to the Archaeological Museum of Delphi.

I was born in Madrid on August 27, 1988 and since then I started a work of which there is no example. Fascinated by both numbers and letters and a lover of the unknown, that is why I am a future graduate in Economics and Journalism, interested in understanding life and the forces that have shaped it. Everything is easier, more useful and more exciting if, with a look at our past, we can improve our future and for that… History.
