Visit to Vergina

Post by delos13 »

Hello all,

A few weeks after my return from Greece, I am delighted to share with you my pictures and impressions from my visit to Vergina. I will be happy to answer any questions you have.

Below is the link to my page on FB or you can simply search for "Modern Geography of Ancient Greece" page.

Thank you. This time I fell in love with Vergina, despite all the drawbacks of restriction in taking photos. Though many love Pella better, Vegina's current advantage is that most of the finds are from time of Philip and Alexander or immediately afterwards, whereas what we currently can see in Pella is all post Philip/Alexander & Roman; same can be said about Naoussa's tombs and theatre though Aristoteles' school in Mieza is also from Philip/Alexander times.
