Twin tomb from Stamata, Attica
Add tagComments 0 Share this page
The twin tomb was discovered in 1988 outside the apse of a three-aisled basilica excavated by the 1st Ephorate of Byzantine Antiquities at Stamata, Attica. It was brought to the Byzantine Museum in 1996. The particular interest of the tomb lies in its iconography—a cross and birds are accompanied by painted inscriptions, which contain invocations for the salvation of the souls of the dead."
