Body of Philip II of Macedon - Vergina

Skeleton of Philip II, displayed at the National Museum of Thessaloniki. It was unearthed in 1977 during excavations in Vergina, in the northern Greek region of Macedonia, by archaeologist Manolis Andronikos. The body was buried in Tomb II of Great Tumulus (Megali Toumba), along with many valuable and precious artеfacts. Some scientists still disagree that this body is Philip's II body. According to them, these male bones belong to Philip III Arrhidaeus, who was son of Philip II and half-brother of Alexander III of Macedon.
