Architrave fragments found in Amphipolis

Three pieces of architrave (epistyle) between 80 cm and 115 cm, long were dug up by archeologists at the Amphipolis excavation site.

The pieces were retrieved in the space after the second separating wall that bears the Caryatids, from within the dirt that filled up the area. The architrave fragments bear blue and red coloration.

According to sources from the Ministry of Culture other architraves are found unscathed within the antechamber. The fragments were taken to Amphipolis Museum for reasons of protection.

Meanwhile, according to local media in Kavala, archeologists seem to have found inscribed plaques in the tomb, which may provide clues or even reveal who was/is buried there. These reports have not been confirmed by the ministry.
