Hydraulic Construction Discovered in Evros



    Just a few miles away from the river Evros, in a town famous for its Byzantine history, a great hydraulic construction came to light during a recent excavation in the area. According to archaelogists, it was constructed in the Roman period, when Diyimoteicho was still called Plotinopolis. Today at 19:00 p.m archaelogist Mathew Koutsoumanis will present during a lecture, the latest findings of the excavation. The lecture is titled ” Fascinating Sample of Roman Hydraulic Architecture in Plotinopolis of Didymoteicho”. The excavation took place in the Aghia Petra region in the conflux of the Evros and Eruthropotamos rivers. Efforts are being made by local authorities to protect the findings and make them accessible to the public.
