The press conference of the Ministry of Culture earlier today (12.11) gave us some surprise news. The excavating team have uncovered a large grave, made of limestones. It has been found at a depth of 1.60 meters under the limestones that formed the (diaphragmatic) floor of the third chamber. This grave, which has a length of 3.23 meters and a width of 1.56 meters, contained the coffin with the rem...

The Jewish festival of Hanukkah takes place next month, and these days it celebrates the miracle of the sacred oil lasting eight days rather than one, and continuing to provide Light. It used to celebrate the event that immediately preceded the miracle, the defeat of Antiochus IV. Hanukkah used to be one of the more minor festivals, but since it tends to fall around the same period as Christmas it...

I will start by pointing out that English is a complicated language, one of whose quirks is the use of strange collective nouns, for example: a murder of crows, or a pride of lions. Once again I am using this as the sort of pun Aristophanes appreciated, in the sense that Greeks should be proud of both the monument formerly known as The Lion Tomb, and the work of the team there. Whether or not t...

The Brilliance of Katerina Peristeri

Marina Schiza asked me to write a short critique about Amphipolis for Phileleftheros, and I did so yesterday. I am not sure when the piece will appear, but it was very easy for me to be critical of the many jealous colleagues whose envy of Dr Peristeri's discovery is eating away at them. I will not repeat what I wrote there, but elaborate on the good work at Amphipolis instead. Envy is a un...

I fully agree with Dr Peristeri on this issue! Whilst we are all allowed to have opinions about the tomb, she and her team are clearly doing good work of the same high standard as their work elsewhere. Not only have they put together a very good team, but from everything I have seen, their work is exemplary. The reason their progress is easy for me to 'read' in the photos and to ...

As the excavation of the Amphipolis tomb is nearing its completion, archaeologists have good reason to believe that more burial monuments could be found in the area, newspaper Eleftherotypia reported. Archaeologists have come to the conclusion that there is no fourth chamber in the Amphipolis tomb, but upon completion of their work in about 10 days they will use x-ray scanners to search the sur...
