Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, accompanied by his wife Georgia and Culture Minister Constantinos Tassoulas, today visited the site of Ancient Amphipolis, in northern Greece.
Samaras also visited Kasta hill and was guided through the ongoing archaeological excavation site.
Archaeologists believe that the excavations carried out in the site are about to reveal an important tomb. According to the findings so far - presented in March by the head of 28th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities Katerina Peristeri during the 27th archaeological scientific meeting- excavations during the past two years at Kasta hill have revealed a unique grave circle which dates back to the last quarter of the 4th century BC.
