61. Mirine Fulfinum - Sarcophagus

In the entrance area of the basilica, a sarcophagus that has never been opened was found in a hole dug into the rock. Several other tombs were later discovered in the surroundings.


During the clearing of the entrance area, an in-situ sarcophagus was found under a large amount of stone debris, a very rare and valuable object of this complex. This sarcophagus, still with its original lid, has been in the same place under the church ever since it was first buried there. Without desecrating the grave, by using a micro-camera, it was determined that two deceased were placed inside.
