TAGS: Archaeology, Culture

The Culture Ministry announced on Tuesday that it had rectified a spelling mistake on a marble plaque at ancient Philippi in northern Greece commemorating the location’s declaration as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The mistake was noticed during a ceremony at the site on Sunday, attended by Culture Minister Lydia Koniordou, to mark its inclusion in UNESCO’s list. Instead of “World,” the plaque erroneously read “Word.”
