Late Roman antiquities were discovered during excavations at the Plateia Theatrou (Theater Square) in Athens, Greece this month.

According to the Greek Ministry of Culture, the remains of a building complex and a mosaic floor were found in the southern part of the square.

The building has a middle section 7.4 metres long and is set off by marble blocks arranged in a row, indicating the existence of a colonnade.

This excavation has been part of an urban makeover of land surrounding the square which began on October 7, 2022.

Earlier excavations have revealed architectural components that appear to belong to the same complex, including similar wall and mosaic floors.
