Torture victim’s skeleton found in Byzantine cathedral

The skeleton of a torture victim dating back to the 5th century has been found in a Byzantine cathedral in Syria.

A grape squeezer and the skeleton of a human believed to have been tortured to death were found in a service area off the northern hall, Abdul-Maseeh Baghdo, the leader of the dig team, said Saturday.

Archaeologist have uncovered a floor inlaid with reddish-yellow baked clay, the stairway, steps and two intact 16-foot columns that supported a long-ago collapsed ceiling of baked clay and basalt stone, KUNA reported.
