New 3D Images of Amphipolis Tomb in Greece

A company called Ancient Athens 3D has made a computer generated simulation of the Amphipolis tomb that reveals the beauty and detail of this ancient mysterious place.

The Kasta Tomb or Casta Tomb, also known as the Amphipolis Tomb, is an ancient Macedonian tomb discovered in Amphipolis,Central Macedonia, in northern Greece in 2012 and first entered in August 2014. (See Video Below)

The tomb is dated at the last quarter of 4th century B.C., and it is the largest burial monument ever discovered in Greece and by comparison dwarfs the tomb of Philip II of Macedon, father of Alexander the Great, in Vergina.

It is not yet known who is buried in the tomb, but the initial public speculation that it could be the tomb of Alexander the Great, because of its size and estimated cost of construction, was dismissed by the experts community when commenting on the published findings, as the available historical records mention Alexandria in Egypt as the last known location of Alexander’s body; it has been supported instead, that a likely occupant could be either a wealthy Macedonian noble or a late member of the royal family.
