Aristotle’s Tomb

aristotle_tombAn announcement regarding the tomb of Aristotle in Ancient Stageira in northern Greece was the highlight of an international conference held in Thessaloniki on Thursday, 26 May.

International delegates attending the “Aristotle 2400 Years” World Congress heard that archaeologists carrying out a 20-year excavation at the ancient Macedonian city believe the site’s most important finding to be the Greek philosopher’s tomb. Aristotle, who was born in the same city in 384 BC, died in Evia in 322 BC.

The conference was organized by the Interdisciplinary Center for Aristotle Studies of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
