The Alabaster Tomb


The Alabaster Tomb in the Latin cemetery. It is the antechamber of a large subterranean funerary monument, like the royal hypogea discovered in Macedonia. It has been dated to the early third century BC, and both its date and its luxuriousness prompted Adriani to suggest that it might be the tomb of Alexander. Even if this is not the case, it must surely be the resting place of a high dignitary of the Ptolemaic kingdom.
