Sewage work reveals Phoenician tombs
Published on May 7th, 2012 | by Admin0
According to archaeologists that arrived at the excavation site, the tombs might present an extension of the ancient carved tomb, known as catacomb, which is also dated in the 4th century B.C. and is located under the old church of Faneromeni Virgin Mary.
Mayor of Larnaca Andreas Louroutziatis immediately visited the area after being informed of the findings, and in his statement he noted that “works for the sewage system construction will temporarily stop in that particular area of Faneromeni Avenue, until the Antiquities Department establish if it’s necessary to continue excavations in the particular location for discovering more antiquity findings.”
