Obviously, it would be amazing if this was the final resting place of Alexander the Great. it would be good for tourism and the boost to the country’s confidence would also be nice, but the press release tries a little too hard to NOT suggest this is the fact.

“..a skeleton inside a tomb from the time of Alexander the Great, during a dig that has enthralled the public.”

“..almost intact skeleton belonged to a “distinguished public figure”

“the tomb in all probability belongs to a male and a general”

“It is in all probability a monument to a mortal who was worshipped by his society at the time.”

“Speculation has been rife, with experts raising several possibilities including the deceased being a member of Alexander the Great of Macedon’s family or one of his most senior officials.”

“..Amphipolis was a major city of the Macedonian Kingdom… 357 BC Conquered by Philip II of Macedon, Alexander the Great’s father… Under Alexander, served as major naval base..”

The 5ociety will continue to monitor ice-cream sales in Amphipolis X
