  • [01] Painted architectural parts emerge from Kasta Tumulus in Amphipolis

    ANA-MPA - Most of the earth around the two sphinxes found under an apse at the Kasta Tumulus in Amphipolis has been removed, the Culture ministry announced on Thursday, revealing the upper register of a marble lintel with frescoes under the base of the sphinxes.

    The lintel mimics an Ionic lintel (epistyle) in paint, including the colours red, blue and black. It rests on two Ionic capitals, also painted with the same colours, crowning the pillasters that form the door frame.

    The archaeological service is continuing the removal of the earth around the apse and the stones of the protecting wall below it, while Friday's work will include stabilising Thursday's findings.

    Earlier on Thursday, Culture Minister Constantinos Tasoulas confirmed that parts of the wings of the sphinxes were found, adding that the excavation works continue and may take two weeks or more before drawing definite conclusions.
