Golden 'curse tablets' discovered in tombs of ancient Roman city
At the archeological site of Viminacium, tablets have been discovered inside Roman tombs.
The tablets, which some believe to be cursed, are made of gold and silver and were found at the site, which is located in what is modern-day Serbia.
An inscription on one of the tablets reads, "Let all forces and demons help that."
The find is of particular importance, as other known examples of such tablets were engraved in lead.
Miomir Korac, chief archeologist at the Viminacium site, has said, "...it shows us how luxurious the life in Viminacium was or how much hope they had in the 'curse tablets' so that they used precious metals."
There are also mentions of both Christ and pagan gods on the tablets, which illustrates the slow conversion from paganism to Christianity.
Archeologists also found Christians and pagans buried together, implying people of both religions co-existed.
The city was destroyed by the Huns in the 6th century.
