Description
The modern-day Greek town of Vergina was the seat of the ancient Macedonian kingdom of Philip II and Alexander the Great, who purportedly traced their lineage back to Heracles. In the past six decades, archaeologists have uncovered artifacts of unparalleled splendor in this region, many originating in the royal tomb. Among the objects shown here in more than 250 color photographs are Philip's magnificent armor; a wreath with leaves made entirely out of gold; a clay figure of a laughing satyr; a perfume vessel shaped like the head of Adonis; decorated ostrich eggs used to hold aromatic oils; and the Queen Mother Eurydice's throne, still extravagantly beautiful after 2500 years.
