The Greek authorities have enhanced the security measures around the tomb in Amphipolis, adding members of the special units of the Greek police to the existing security. It is significant that the measures are starting at a distance of 800 metres around the tomb.

According to the Greek media that refer to representatives of the local government bodies, and they, in turn, to participants in the excavations, the team have discovered two slabs with inscriptions that may provide information about the person(s) laid in the tomb.

Last night the Hellenic Ministry of Culture presented the first drawing showing the axonometric reconstruction of the so far uncovered part of the Amphipolis tomb, the work of architect Michalis Lefantzis. It depicts the entrance with the partition walls, and the sphinxes and caryatids that were found in front of them.

Meanwhile, the online edition of "Ethnos" newspaper reports that archaeologists found today three architraves with preserved colours. According to the text, they have been transferred to the museum in Amphipolis for restoration.
