EXCAVATIONS AT THE CEMETERY OF APOLONIA in 2005
250 burials were excavated dating from mid-5th to late 3th century BC. Earthen pits and rock graves predominate. The numerous finds of imported or local pottery include two unique lekythi with plastic and polychrome ornamentation, many terra-cottas, a glass scaraboid and a pendant. It was for the first time established that in the first half of 4th century BC the Apolonian cemetery has been divided into family plots flanking a road (via sacra) 6.5 m wide.
