Skeletons of Romans inside family tomb

Skeletons of the Romans inside the family tomb. This place was found in the Jagodin Mala necropolis, in Niš (ancient Naissus), in south-eastern Serbia. The object dates to the 3rd-4th century CE.

The necropolis had dimensions: 2000 x 600 meters and was used by both christians and pagans. Archaeologists have examined many graves and found many valuable finds such as jewelry, ceramics, glass vessels and other items for everyday use. The walls of some tombs are decorated with frescoes that represent unique examples of late Roman art in Serbia.
