EXPERTS working at the mysterious large tomb at AMPHIPOLIS in Macedonia, Greece, say five bodies were laid to rest in the burial pit under the inner-most third chamber of the tomb.

Initially, it was thought the skeletal remains were those of a man. 

But further analysis of the scattered remains now shows that they belong to:

  • One woman over 65 years old.
  • Two men around 35-45 years old each, the younger of whom may have suffered fatal knife wounds.
  • One infant.
  • One adult person (male or female) who had been cremated.

In addition, non-human bones were found, probably those of a horse.

It is possible that more than five bodies were interred, according to a news release which also said that DNA testing is still underway and results are expected next month.

The findings fuel speculation that a the tomb may have been the resting place of a royal person ... whose remains would have been cremated.

Presumably, the other persons were close loved ones.

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.
