Location of Aristotle’s tomb to be revealed at Thessaloniki conference Thursday


An announcement regarding the tomb of Aristotle in Ancient Stageira in northern Greece was expected to be the highlight at an international conference held in Thessaloniki on Thursday.

International delegates attending the "Aristotle 2400 Years" World Congress on Thursday were expected to hear that archaeologists carrying out a 20-year excavation at the ancient Macedonian city believe the site's most important finding to be the Greek philosopher's tomb. Aristotle, who was born in the same city in 384 BC, died in Evia in 322 BC.

The conference is organized by the Interdisciplinary Center for Aristotle Studies of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
