15 Byzantine tombs unearthed in Central Syria

15 tombs dating back to the Byzantine area have been discovered in al-Ruba, Syria.

Farzat noted that the findings in the cemetery included 10 incomplete pottery jars, 5 metal and glass bracelets, 2 metal rings in a bad condition, 2 copper coins, 6 stone beads, 2 glass perfume bottles and 4 golden chips believed to be used to cover the eyes of the deceased during the burial.

He added that 8 pottery lanterns were also found in the cemetery, along with a number of broken and worn-out shoes made of leather, which indicates that the tombs are for soldiers who used those shoes during the time of wars to protect their feet from any possible injuries.
