  • [01] Skeleton remains found in Amphipolis grave belong to five persons, say test results

    ANA/MPA---The skeleton remains found in the ancient Amphipolis tomb have been identified as belonging to five individuals, the Culture Ministry said on Monday.

    After the conclusion of the examination and processing of the bones found in the tomb, which was conducted by the scientists of the Aristotle and Democritus Universities, at least five persons have been identified. Four of them have been buried: one woman over the age of 60, two middle aged men and a newborn. Scientists also identified bone fragments belonging to a fifth person – probably an adult – who was cremated before being buried.

    According to the Culture ministry, the remains found in the tomb make up about 550 bones, fragmented or intact, a skull in a rather good condition and an almost intact lower jaw.

    Moreover, some bones have been identified as belonging to animals, probably to horses, which will be examined by a specialist.
