Summary (English)

  • ARCHAEOLOGICAL EXPLORATIONS NEAR SCRETISCA (Ventsislav Dinchev – vdintchev@abv.bg) An area situated to the north of the Roman mansio Scretisca was explored. A sector of the pavement of the Roman road Naissus – Serdica, 17.60 m long, was discovered. The road was oriented northwest – southeast and was 5.25 m wide. The pavement was built of uneven stones driven into the earth. The joints between the stones were trampled with smaller stones or river pebbles. The northeastern curbstone of the road was partly preserved. A ditch, 15 – 20 cm deep, was shaped along the inner side of the curbstone. Eight copper coins (one minted in Nicaea by Severus Alexander and the rest of the 4th century AD), a bronze ring, iron nails and clamps, and sherds of the 3rd – 4th centuries AD were found on the road.
