Is it Alexander’s tomb? Could, really, be . Archaeologists say it will be defined at the end of this month  

 Although the discovery marks a significant discovery from the early Hellenistic era, on Alexander’s birthplace, the Culture Ministry spokesperson said there is no evidence yet to suggest a link to Alexander the Great, who died in 323 BC after an unprecedented military campaign through the Middle East, Asia and northeast Africa, or his family.

The official said the Amphipolis site, situated about 100 km northeast of Greece’s second-biggest city Thessaloniki, appeared to be the largest ancient tomb that has been discovered in Greece.
