Results of tests on Amphipolis bones due in a few days

More information about the skeleton found at the Ancient Amphipolis tomb in northern Greece is to be made public by January 20, officials said on Wednesday.

Culture Ministry general secretary Lina Mendoni made the announcement at the first meeting of the Central Archaeological Council this year. Mendoni stressed that the the date by which tests on the remains would be completed had been set well before snap elections were called for January 25.

The Culture Ministry said that scientists would establish the sex, age and height of the person whose remains were found at the Alexander the Great-era tomb. Mendoni added that there may be more tombs hidden in the Amphipolis mound.
