The rescue archaeological excavation was carried out in Alba Iulia, 64, Viilor Street, on the surface destined for a warehouse building.
The investigated area is situated in the eastern part of the Roman necropolis from Dealul Furcilor, on the slope which descends from the first terrace of the Mureş River. The respective terrain lies also at the northern end of the Partoş district and it represents the closest explored part of the cemetery to the Roman town Colonia Aurelia Apulensis.
There were discovered and recorded 18 Roman graves: 13 cremation graves (6 of them were bustum type and 7 ustrinum type), 4 inhumation graves in brick sarcophagi and a cenotaph. These Roman graves belong to the same burial horizon dated to the 2nd – 3rd centuries A.D., on the basis of the funerary inventory.
