Golden Wreath Discovered Under Streets of Thessaloniki

By January 29, 2013

Follow me on:

Excavations for the city of Thessaloniki's subway system have turned up thousands of artifacts - but a golden wreath may top them all. The surprise is that it comes from a simple grave of a woman, while similar wreaths found elsewhere are usually associated with royal or at least aristocratic burials. Similar wreaths can be seen at the royal burial mound of Alexander's the Great's father and other royal family members at Vergina in Northern Greece.
