Tunisia discovers giant stele with Latin inscriptions 1800 years ago
Tunisian media reported on the 16th that the Tunisian Ministry of Culture issued a statement on the 15th announcing the discovery of a giant stone stele with Latin inscriptions dating back to 150-250 AD in the Banan area of Monastir Province.
The stone stele with Latin inscriptions is 1.20 meters long, 80 cm wide and weighs more than 1.5 tons. It is in good condition and its history can be traced back to the ancient Roman era.
Preliminary research shows that the text on the stele dates back to 150-250 AD, and the text is about a high-level government official of that era. This means that the stele is more than 1,800 years old.
The Ministry of Cultural Affairs of Tunisia has announced a number of archaeological discoveries in recent years, the most famous of which are the archaeological site of Tozeur Province dating back from 80,000 to 100,000 BC, the ancient Byzantine city discovered in Jendouba Province, and Mahdi An archaeological site of the Roman era discovered.
