Roman tombstone unearthed near Bitola

n ancient tomb stone dating from the Roman era has been uncovered today in the Bitola's nearby village of Zabeni, Makfax's correspondent reported.

Mentor Huseinovski found the plaque, dating from the 3rd century A.D., while digging through his yard.

"I was digging a hole by the duct in order to build a crossing bridge over to my doorstep. I found the plaque dug in about half a meter into the ground", said Huseinovski, who notified immediately the Bitola's Museum and Office for Protection of Cultural Heritage.

The preliminary findings of the archeologists suggest that an artifact is likely to be a segment of a family tomb.

The value of the archeological artifact is yet to be determined as Huseinovski family is still pondering what to do with it.
