ZONGULDAK - Anadolu Agency
AA PhotoOfficials from the Ereğli Museum Directorate have found a nearly 2,000-year-old and 100-kilogram wall frieze in a village in the Ereğli district of Zonguldak province in northern Turkey.
The frieze is a sculptured stone depicting a number of figures and is around one meter long.
“It may be a piece from a one-ton wall frieze that was found by an engineer in December 2013 and is currently on display at the Ereğli Museum,” museum director Ahmet Mercan said.
Mercan added that the historic artifacts did not draw the attention of locals in the village up to now.
“But now we will display it alongside the other wall frieze,” he said.
