    Yeah, it's just more or less coffee table talk than serious discussion. That being said and keeping a bit with the theme, there are some archaeologists saying it might be a Roman era tomb rather than a Macedonian one.

    Do some basic readings before putting current political issues in this thred about this great findings.

    In FYROM it will be Aleksandar Filipovski. Filipović is typical Serbian last name,you could grasped it by now and I have not seen any Serbian claiming Greek history. ić ending (lets not go into linquistic here) was heavily changed in FYROM during Tito's times, in order to make new nation. Same goes so for more Bulgarian -ov. So -ski was chosen as "Macedonian"..but story is bit longer

    Sorry for off topic, any way, any clues by now who's tomb it might be?

    Nope, but the leader of the expedition says we will learn in a month. We need to watch the Classico it seems before we start working...

    the bearded man is considered to be Phillip, Alexander's father.

    So Philip is depicted as dead?
    I guess it might be Alexander's tomb... maybe.

    There are thoughts that the tomb is 1st century BC Roman, not Alexander's because of the marble columns depicting women (I can't remember what they're called, Carytids or something)

    I am not entirely convinced, but he has some valid point though: https://www.academia.edu/8926789/Is_..._the_Sculpture

    He argues that the tomb is Olympia's, erected by Alexander IV. and Roxane while they were living in Amphipolis. He argues that Cassander might have allowed the building despite the fact, that he was the killer of Olympia, to please the other Generals, which thought that with the age of 14, Alexander IV. would take command. After both of them were killed a few years later, it might have been Cassander who damaged the tomb, but still sealed it afterwards.

    Proud to be a real Prussian.

    Likely now, I think, put into the tomb interior by the Romans when they sealed the tomb.

    One of them an infant as well.

    Hum hum hum!

    This whole thing really intrigues me. The scale of the tomb makes it hard to believe that it is just some nameless rich noble. Surely this should be someone of royalty?

    Given that Ptolemy stole the body of Alexander, I highly doubt that it's Alexander's tomb. Either way, it's someone of serious importance, given that it's so big.
