More excitement at Amphipolis as archaeologists revealed a beautiful mosaic, mostly intact depicting the abduction of Persephone into the Underworld – a popular tale in Greek Mythology. The mosaic, made of tiny pebbles, measures 4.5 by 3 meters and with the exception a circular disruption in the colored pebbles remains in very good condition. The style of mosaic, indeed the style of the whole tomb experts now credit to Dinocrates of Rhodes who was Alexander the Great’s architect and adviser.
This new grand mosaic in addition to the extraordinary sculpture work has gossip flying that this mysterious tomb may belong to Alexander the Great. Archaeologists are still mum about their suspicions as to the tomb’s owner but the evidence is mounting for if not Alexander, than someone as important as his wife Roxana or his mother Olympias may be buried there instead. Stay tuned!
