RELOCATION OF ROMAN TOMB “313”
GREECE, 2013, 15'
  by AGON - Wednesday, 20 July 2016

In 2012, during work for the widening of the «Olympian» motorway close to the location of Ancient Corinth, an ancient graveyard comes to light. As the archaeologists are digging through a layer from Roman times, grave «313» is unearthed. Archaeologist Aglaia Koutroumbis takes charge of the excavation. The portrait of a dead female greets one outside the death chamber of the grave; a very moving sight. In the summer of 2013, the decision is taken to transport and relocate the monument to the Corinth Museum, in view of its importance. Dimitris Korres assumes the task of relocating the monument, which weighs 80 tons.
