Underground ruins, Kotzia Square

There’s also a pottery ‘mall’, i.e. a complex of pottery workshops and pottery kilns from the third and fourth centuries AD along with the remains of houses.

Over 650 graves were excavated here, from sarcophagi and tile graves to children’s burial jars. Grave gifts found here include animal figurines, terracotta vases, bronze mirrors, coins, gold jewelry and more. The main street here seems to have been in use for some 700 years, until the Heruli (a barbaric tribe from Northern Europe) destroyed and pillaged the area and the whole city.
