Glorious Ancient Past of Thessaloniki Unearthed


Significant archaeological finds are being unearthed almost on a daily basis from the excavations for the Thessaloniki Metro.

The findings highlighting the glorious ancient past of the modern Macedonian city are being studied by a host of archaeologists and other scientists to uncover more details about the past.

“The findings will be evaluated by a special committee of the Ministry of Culture, in which we also participate to find the best way to exhibit them,” said the metro chairman Giannis Mylopoulos.

He added that the antiquities are not treated like obstacles that hinder the project but as part of this great work.

They were presented at a conference in Thessaloniki on Friday.
