Ancient tomb discovered in Cyprus

A tomb raided in the past has been discovered in the ancient metropolis of Paphos on Cyprus. The tomb is one of six such features discovered by archaeologists in the area of Kato Paphos, dated to Greco-Roman Period between 300BC-300AD. The uncovered tomb contains decorated wall murals and contained important artefacts. Two of the six tombs were raided in the past, but all of the newly found sites can shed light on the past as large part of the modern city is built on ancient burial ground and blocks access to the archaeological layers.
