EXPERTS working at the mysterious large tomb at AMPHIPOLIS in Macedonia, Greece, have released this rendering of original appearance of the body which they claim to have found in the inner-most third chamber of the tomb.

The skeletal remains indicate the body was that of a light-skinned male with auburn-brown hair who was of average height for men in ancient times: 165 cm tall or 5 feet, 5 inches. The remains are undergoing DNA testing at special labs in Manchester UK.

It must be noted that this rendering by artist Demetris Aggelousis which appeared in "Ta NEA" newspaper is highly fanciful.

No armour, helmet, clothing or any other treasures were found with the skeletal remains scattered amongst the remnants of a wooden coffin at the bottom of a deep limestone block pit.

The skeletal remains and bits of wooden debris were interspersed by iron and copper nails along with ivory and glass decorative adornments for the coffin.

The discovery of skeletal remains raises almost as many questions as it answers, since wood was not thought to have been used for royal coffins in the time of Alexander the Great. Royals were cremated in Ancient Greece.

However, it could be the body of a non-royal person ... such as Alexander's lover Hephaestion.

The latest discovery comes only weeks after the archaeologists uncovered mosaic flooring of the second chamber ... revealing the Abduction of Proserpine/Persephone by Pluto. 

The symbolism of the MOSAIC, which was discovered in the second chamber along with CARYATIDS, vastly increases the chances that this tomb houses a member of the Macedonian royal family.

The Greek prime minister has said he is almost certain it must be the LOST TOMB OF ALEXANDER

Alexander sailed from Amphipolis to Asia. 

However, it is almost certain that his tomb is located in Alexandria, since people such as Julius Caesar, Hadrian and Antinous are supposed to have visited his burial site there.

Other candidates for the tomb include the MOTHER OF ALEXANDER or possibly Roxana the WIFE OF ALEXANDER or even his male lover Hephaestion.
