Roman Findings: Happy Dog

Licking Dog

Pete Cresswell and Andrew Broughton were both using their metal detectors in Gloucestershire, U.K., when they discovered an interesting treasure. Dating to the 4th century they discovered two statues, one interesting and the other amazing. There was a large bronze statue that was broken into pieces that may have been the best find but a dog stole the show. A licking dog statue was found which appeared to look like a happy dog with its mouth open and looking up. Maybe it will remind you of your dog but it is certainly a unique find. The dog has never been discovered in Britain before and may be unique in this area of the dead empire.

Roman Antalya

In the splendid Mediterranean province of Antalya, six new Roman tombs have been discovered during construction and the site was taken under protection by the Antalya Museum Directorate. They were determined to be from the Roman period but as to who occupied the tombs, that remains a mystery.

A Konya Mosaic

The Konya province keeps up its generosity with another Roman discovery. Once again, construction workers discovered a Roman artifact and were forced to stop digging. Museum officials launched a dig and a large mosaic floor along with columns and column bases were discovered. The mosaic was quite detailed and consists of a series of interlocking lines varying in design from quilted to spirals and helices. The center is a circle with a circular helix inside it and then another circle inside the helix has text which appears to be Greek but the image is hard to make out.
