French sources says that at least half a dozen sarcophagii with urns and ashes have been excavated thus far in the historic port district.
"The Hill of the Lazaretto was an important necropolis also during the Roman period", says Guévalet. "This discovery would clarify and strengthen the panorama of the Greek occupation, including the location of the cemeteries which are traditionally located outside the city."
