Bulgarian archaeologists discovered a necropolis of ancient Apollonia in the coastal town of Sozopol, Director of the Museum of History in Sozopol Dimitar Nedev announced for FOCUS News Agency.
In Nedev's words, the burial was found in the northern part of the narthex of the three-naved basilica under the levels of the two churches.
"The situation is the following: two churches -- one from VI and another from the VII century, with equal period of construction, and another one of the X century, existing until XVII century. In the outlines of the northern part of the narthex, we found the beginning of the level of ancient Apollonia and it is of the earliest period. A burial of a young woman was discovered â with only one utensils for scents, and the woman was pregnant, probably died during the pregnancy," Nedev explained.
"Today we found the burial of a small child, mayby aged up to 3 years (anthropologically the age is of 0 to 5 years), but we suppose it is aged around 3, since the legs are very small (around 10 centimetres). The burial was done in an amphora from the Samos island, which is dated to the beginning of the third quarter of the VI century before Christ. This is the same chronological border we set when we found the vase with the erotic scenes; a little bit earlier than this period."

Sozopol is on the Black Sea and is a popular tourist destination. In ancient times it was known as Apollonia Pontus because, as Civ’s pottery shows, it was a haven for punters. :-))
