Archaeologists unearth Greco-roman artefacts in Egypt

Egypte in de Romeinse tijd

ABU QIR – Ninety-nine sunken pieces of antiquities were salvaged by the European marine archaeological institute mission in association with the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) in the areas of Eastern Port and Heracleum in Abu Qir.

Zahi Hawas, the SCA Secretary-General, said the salvaged pieces include four gold coins that date back to the Islamic era and 12 bronze coins from the Ptolemaic and Roman periods.

The Eastern Part area, which is home to the Royal neighbourhood in the Greco-Roman time, is still teeming with artefacts that should be spotted and discovered. (Bron: Global Arab Network)
