From MSNBC:

Last month, Syrian media reported the discovery of a Roman-era cross-shaped limestone cemetery in the Nasiriya area in the remote Hasaka province, some 440 miles northeast of Damascus, dating from the third century. The graveyard also contained coins, pottery shards and bracelets dating to the later Aramaic era.
