Archaeologists have made an incredible discovery in the heart of Rome, bumping into the 2000-Year-old marble head of Dionysius, the ancient Greek God of wine, wine, fertility and theatre.
Archaeologists believe that the head belongs to the great statue of God related to the imperial era.
As the excavations of the medieval wall were carried out, to the greatest surprise of archaeologists, they noticed the marble head, which, in their opinion, represents the ancient Greek God of Dionysius.
“Archaeologists dug a medieval wall when they saw a white marble head hidden in the ground”, the statement of the archaeological park of Colosseum, which covers the Roman Forum, says.
” The face is sophisticated and grace, young and magnificent. All this makes us think it could be a statue of god dionysius “.
According to reports, the marble head will be cleaned and ultimately displayed.
Dionysus was the son of Zeus and Semely, the mortal daughter of the king of Thebes. He was worshiped by ancient Greeks as one of the 12 Gods of Olympus and he was known to Romans as bacchus.
