Tomb Raiders Likely Plundered Ancient Greek Site

Tomb Raiders Likely Plundered Ancient Greek Site

A suspicious hole on the top left of the blocking wall suggests tomb raiders may have pluntered the tomb.

Archaeologists removed dozens of massive stones sealing the entrance of the huge burial complex in Amphipolis, revealing the front of the monument almost entirely.

The tomb's arched entrance was guarded by two headless, wingless, finely carved sphinxes.

Weighing about 1 1/2 tons each, they would have been 6 1/2 feet high with their heads.

A pebbled floor was also unearthed in the center and front of the entrance.
