Greek farmer finds headless statue while tilling his field in ancient DolicheAncient artifacts and archeological remains have previously been unearthed in the same district

An important archaeological find turned up near the village of Dolichi, near the central Greek city of Elassona this week, with a farmer discovering a major part of a headless statue while tilling his field with a tractor.

The partial statue, one meter in length, shows a female form.

Several other ancient artifacts and archeological remains have previously been unearthed in the same district, which corresponds with Doliche, an ancient city-state related to a battle where Roman consul Titus Quinctius Flamininus defeated Philip V of Macedon during the Second Macedonian War.
