Roman cemetery in Fiskardo (island of Kefalonia, Greece) was discovered in 1993. The place is dated to the 2nd-4th century CE. During the excavations, 47 graves were found and there is a conjecture that further remains of the cemetery are located under the nearby road.
Preserved graves were certainly family burials, because in one grave there were usually remains of several people. Along with the bodies, objects that were supposed to accompany the deceased were often also buried: m.i.n. necklaces, rings, glass vessels, mirrors, strigiles, olive lamps.
