A collection of terracotta figurines depicting Greek gods, men, women and animals was recently discovered in the ancient Greek town of Myra (now called Demre), which was once an important town in Lycia. Archaeologists were excavating part of a 4th-century Roman theater, when they unearthed a smaller, earlier Hellenistic theater. The figures were found in a thick layer of silt dating to the first and second centuries BC within the older theater. Nevzat Çevik, a professor of archaeology at Akdeniz University, and the director of the excavations is quoted as saying that the figurines give “rich clues about what existed in the mysterious Myra under a thick silt layer in the first and second centuries BC.” Myra is mentioned once in Scripture as a place the Apostle Paul stopped on his journey to Rome (Acts 27:5).
