Archaeological excavations reveal a complex, part of which was a wine shop.

The store operated during the time when the Roman Empire controlled the region. It was found in the ancient city of Sikion, which is located on the northern coast of the Peloponnese.

In the south of Greece, in the ancient city of Sikion, archaeologists discovered a 1,600-year-old wine store from the Roman era. This is reported by Arkeonews.

The researchers also found scattered coins, and the remains of marble countertops and vessels made of bronze, glass and ceramics, which give an idea of the last moments of the existence of the ancient institution.

Archaeological excavations also helped to find an entire complex that housed a wine shop. There were many workshops with ovens and installations for pressing grapes or olives.

According to Scott Gallimore, most of the coins found date from the era of Constantius II, which lasted from 337 to 361. The last coin in the collection was minted between 355 and 361. However, despite the large number of finds, it is still difficult for researchers to determine the specific types of wines that were sold in this establishment.

All that is known is that the larger complex, including the shop, appears to have been abandoned in the early 5th century, possibly around the same time as the devastating event.

The destruction could have been caused by an earthquake or a possible roof collapse caused by natural factors such as excessive rainfall.

The research was led by a team led by Scott Gallimore of Wilfrid Laurier University and Martin Wells of Austin College.

It was previously reported that in the Amazon rainforest, archaeologists discovered a huge lost ancient city that is more than two thousand years old.
