The finds that came to light during this year’s excavations at the hill of Aghia Petra, in Didymoteicho, which has been identified with the ancient Plotinopolis, a Roman city founded by the Roman Emperor Traianus, who named the town after his wife Plotini, are once again impressive.

The archaeological interest of the hill has been recognized as early as before World War II, while in 1965 a golden forged bust of Roman Emperor Septimius Severus was found there. In Aghia Petra, systematic excavations were conducted by the 19th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities in 1977 and the early 1980s.
