Two of the sarcophaguses exhibited in the yard of Adana Archeological Museum have striking features in terms of material used, decoration and detail.

Of these, Misis Sarcophagus is made from marble, ElaiusseSebaste from limestone. As Misis Sarcophagus has been found as a result of an operation against unlawful historical smugglers in 1972 and has been placed in the museum, ElaiusseSebaste Sarcophagus been determined in the city it was named and was brought to the museum.

Both sarcophaguses display the features of Paganism and Christianity. Both Pagan and Christian figures and decorations have been used on these. These sarcophaguses are of greater importance because there exist figures and symbols of paganism on the one side and Christianity on the other side. This indicates that Christianity has just been accepted and Paganism has not been left yet.
