    [02] Significant Hellenistic-era statue discovered in Alexandria

    ALEXANDRIA (ANA-MPA / N. Katsikas) -- The director of the Hellenic Research Institute of the Alexandrian Civilization (HRIAC) this week described a marble statue unearthed on May 4 during excavations in Shalalat Gardens of Alexandria, referring to a "a very important Hellenistic statue, very rare in terms of craftsmanship and beauty, and one that depicts a great figure of Hellenic history."

    The 80cm-tall statue was found in very good condition and retains numerous characteristics reminiscent of statues depicting Alexander the Great.

    HRIAC director Kalliopi Limneou-Papakosta, an archaeologist, underlined that the statue will have to be studied further in order to draw safer conclusions as regards the identity of the figure it depicts.

    The specific statue is regarded as the most important discovery made in Alexandria in recent times, and will soon be on display at the city's archaeological museum.
