Rome unearths ancient Roman sarcophagus at Ostia Antica

An intact terracotta sarcophagus dating from the second century AD has been unearthed alongside the archaeological site of Ostia Antica, in a surprise discovery, reports Rome daily newspaper Il Messaggero.

Inside the sarcophagus are the preserved remains of an original inhabitant of Rome’s ancient port city, who lived more than 1,800 years ago.
