UNESCO Cities of Design

In the ancient city of Sagalassos in Burdur, Turkey, the faces of two people who lived in the Roman and Byzantine period were reconstructed.

For over thirty years, researchers have explored the ancient city of Sagalassos with an international and interdisciplinary team.

The Sagalassos Archaeological Research Project has now created faces. The researchers revived the face of two people who lived here, based on the skeletal remains. One of these faces belonged to a man who lived in the Roman period (beginning of the 3rd century AD) and the other one to a woman who lived in the Byzantine period (11th-13th century).

The researchers named these people as ”Rhodon” and “Eirènè”.
