Greece has spent 590,000 euros on Amphipolis tomb so far, says minister

The cost of excavation operations on Kasta Hill in Serres, northeastern Greece, has not exceeded the sum of 590,000 euros, Culture Minister Costas Tasoulas told Parliament on Monday.

Tasoulas presented the information to the House following a question by Independent Greeks MP Nikos Nikolopoulos.

The figure, noted Tasoulas, concerned funding released from 2010 to October 16, 2014.
