Archaeologists discovered a marble statue about two thousand years old in Kerch
«The statue — a male torso in clothes, in good condition, measuring 1.1 meters, about two thousand years old — is either of late Hellenistic [era], that is, BC, or early Roman, that is, early AD. It is most likely that there was a temple of a rather large size, where were not just small statues, but pretty large statues as well. We do find architectural fragments sometimes, broke off pieces, but nothing so large has been discovered so far,» Butyagin said, adding that no remains of the temple in the territory of the Myrmekion settlement site have been found yet.
The scientist noted that it is still difficult to judge who the statue depicts — the head and hands of the finding are missing.
