Fragments of a Roman sculpture showing a man’s face and torso have been found in central Macedonia.

The discoveries, found at the temple building which has been undergoing archaeological excavations, are rare and important, as they will shed light on the life of people during that period, archaeologist Silvana Blahzevska, Director of the National Institution Stobi, explained, cited by the Vecer newspaper.

“The way the hair and the face of the found head were made, as well as the appearance of the remaining part of the sculpture, suggest that it was of an emperor or an important citizen who lived in the first century,” Blazhevka stated.

Archaeologists expect that the find will help them learn more about the temple which has been continuously robbed since antiquity – about whom it was dedicated to and when it was constructed.
