Greek archaeologists recently unearthed numerous Roman-era tombs near the ancient city of Corinth. Fourteen graves had been organized in a circular fashion, as was the Roman custom, and contained gold and silver coins, vases and lamps. Another group of tombs included five that appear to have belonged to wealthy inhabitants. Their bodies were discovered beside gilded bronze leaves, a gold ring, jewels, and bronze and gold coins. Elena Korka, from the Greek Ministry of Culture, described how "Roman-period builders also repurposed the limestone foundations of earlier, Hellenic structures to build the tombs for wealthy, Roman-era occupants."
