Bulgarian archaeologists have revealed two Roman-time streets, a private home of a Roman notable, and Roman artifacts in the southern Bulgarian city of Plovdiv.

The new finds were discovered close to the Roman amphitheater in Plovdiv, after the excavation work that originally started there in 1976 was resumed at the beginning of July 2009.

Archaeologist Zhenya Tankova, who is in charge of the excavations, said the most unique discovery was a fully preserved bath together with two well-preserved rooms of a private home.

Another interesting finds include a 40-square meter mosaic, ancient lamps, clay statues of the gods Hermes and Terra, 126 bronze and copper coins. All these finds are dated back to the 3rd and 4th century AD.
