Greek authorities greenlight restoration of Ancient Amphipolis MonumentThe monument in Amphipolis, along with its marble perimeter wall which surrounds it and dates back to the early Hellenistic era, will be totally restored

The Central Archaeological Council of Greece (KAS) unanimously approved a study on how best to stabilize, restore and display the Casta Hill Monument at the Amphipolis archaeological site in Serres, Central Macedonia, according to greekreporter.com.

The study was greenlighted in a meeting held on Tuesday evening in Athens, Greece.

According to the architectural study that the KAS approved, the monument in Amphipolis, along with its marble perimeter wall which surrounds it and dates back to the early Hellenistic era, will be totally restored.

It will then return again at some future date to be displayed to the public.

The report also presented evidence that the Lion of Amphipolis, an impressive statue in the same region, was originally placed at the summit of the tomb itself, a conclusion based on the structure of the lion sculpture as well as other geometrical elements.
