An early Christian grave found in the Roman city of Sirmium (now Sremska Mitrovica, northern Serbia). The object is interesting because it still has colourful frescoes, showing references to Christianity.
One of the paintings depicts the Good Shepherd and an angel saving 3 young men thrown into the fire by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II. Similar frescoes were discovered in Naples and Rome.
The tomb is dated to before 313 CE when Christianity was officially legalized in the Milan Edict.
