Washington, April 19 (ANI): A priceless Roman sculpture has been excavated at Stobi archaeological site, Macedonia.

The marble head of Octavius Augustus and a small torso, excavated last week, suggest the sculpture was made to immortalize kings and notable citizens from the first and second century A.D.

It was housed in a temple, which was robbed soon after it was demolished in the classical era.

Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, Culture Minister Elizabeta Kanceska-Milevska and the director of the Department for Cultural Heritage Protection, Pasko Kuzman, visited the site. (ANI)
