Overview
More
The archaeological area of San Simplicio Temple Necropolis, the new important museum of Olbia, preserves part of the archaeological excavation carried out during the redevelopment works of the area in front of San Simplicio Basilica. The excavations brought to light about 450 graves of the Roman age (200 BC to 300 BC) representing a stratification of suburban and necropolis worship phases, it crosses the first 2000 years of the history of Olbia, from its birth with the Phoenicians to the Middle Age. The archaeological site, provides a tangible testimony of the ancient town of Olbia, and goes together with the exhibition of findings of the archaeological Museum. Its uniqueness is related to the fact that this site is integrated in the layers of the modern town and the ancient residential area and its necropolis.
