Necropoli San Simplicio

Necropolis Sardinia, Italy

Testimony of the spread of Christianity on the island Necropoli San Simplicio

The archaeological area of the Tempio Necropoli di San Simplicio, the new important museum in Olbia, houses part of the archaeological excavation carried out during the redevelopment of the space in front of the Basilica of San Simplicio. The excavation, which has returned about 450 tombs of Roman age dating back to 200 B.C. at 300 AD, it represents a stratification of phases of extra-urban worship and necropolis that spans the first 2000 years of the history of the city of Olbia, from its birth with the Phoenicians to the Middle Ages.
