NABLUS, September 18, 2008 (WAFA)- Ruins dating back to the Roman era were discovered today in Nablus during excavations, which had been destroyed earlier by the Israeli Occupation Forces.

 

Dergham Al-Fares, Chairman of the Archaeology Department in the district, announced that the discovery is a cylindrical water cistern, built of stones held together with mud. It is connected to a tunnel which extends from Ein Dafneh to the Roman city of Neapolis. In the middle of this cistern, an 8 meter deep spiral set of stairs was found.  

 

Al-Fares added that this system of cisterns and tunnels is a water supply network, which was used in the Roman era.
