Late Achaemenid Chamber Tombs Founded in Anatolia

 

11 June 2007

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Two late Achaemenid chamber tombs were unearthed in Mugla's Milas town in southwestern nowadays Turkey, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported on Friday.

 

The late Achaemenid tombs were founded during excavations carried out at a construction site in Mugla's Milas town, the report said, adding that the excavations at the site were suspended after the discovery of the tombs.

 

A team led by Erol Ozen, director of Milas Museum, initiated an archaeological study on the tombs whose covers were opened.

 

"According to preliminary studies, the chamber tombs which were constructed as sarcophaguses, date back to 4th century BCE. Numerous perfume bottles and a cup in which ashes of the deceased used to be put, were also discovered inside the tombs," said Ozen.

 

More detailed information regarding the artifacts would be given after the researches were completed at the site, Ozen added.
