Mysterious tablets from Viminacium

This post is also available in: Polish (polski)

In the 21st century, Serbian archaeologists came across numerous interesting finds in ancient Viminacium (eastern Serbia) – the capital of the Roman province of Moesia Superior. One of the most interesting are silver and gold tablets, with mysterious engraved symbols.

The tablets were in the graves that were in the cemetery in which both early Christians and followers of traditional Roman deities were buried. The tablets belong to the group of finds that were discovered in various parts of the Empire over 1,500 in total. Those extracted in Viminacium are unique because they are made of precious metal, unlike other tablets that were made of lead.

The inscriptions on the tablets in Viminacium have the names of eastern deities and numerous symbols, the meaning of which is not clear and certainly refers to astrology and religion.
