Excavations in the necropolis of ancient Antioch, located in the Hatay province of Turkey, have unearthed 19 tombs dating to the Roman period. The project, which has been running since 2007 under the direction of the Hatay Archaeology Museum, has cleaned and examined the tombs. Numerous epitaphs have been deciphered, including ones that read, "lived and died shamelessly," and "keep the spirit." Antioch of Syria was the location of the Apostle Paul's "home" church, and is the place where the followers of Jesus were first called Christians (Acts 11:26)
