60 original twentieth century limestone with epigraph inscriptions on 60 original twentieth century

The Italian-Albanian archeological mission has been working in Finiq and Butrint for more than two decades to bring to light new archeological discoveries. Although, due to the Covid 19 pandemic, these field excavations during the last year were suspended, the representative of the Institute of Archeology in Tirana, archaeologist Belisa Muka, speaks about the cooperation with the head of the mission Enrico Giorgi (University of Bologna), and another important discovery made by Latin writing professor Simona Antolini. There are 60 original epigraphic limestones realized during the last century by the epigraphist Luigi Morricone during the first Italian archeological mission in Butrint led by Luigi Maria Ugolini.

"It is a very nice thing that due to the situation, not only the Butrint project in the Phoenician Butrint research was redimensioned in the current conditions, but meanwhile we are positioned in our field research in the Acropolis area, where the earliest line of fortifications of the city of the archaic period is found. We are exactly in this area, which has given interesting results on Roman imperial structures or even medieval period," "says archaeologist Belisa Muka.
