Dura-Europos, 'Pompeii of the Syrian Desert'

Dura-Europos, 'Pompeii of the Syrian Desert' | Roma Antiqua | Scoop.it

Dura-Europos is an ancient city in Eastern Syria, destroyed by war and abandoned in the third century AD. Excavations in the 1920s and ‘30s, renewed since the 1980s, have revealed spectacular remains of elaborately decorated buildings (including a painted synagogue and a very early Christian shrine), and astonishingly well-preserved artefacts. These famous finds led to the city being dubbed the ‘Pompeii of the Syrian desert’.
