Object description

There are some Macedonian tombs and the necropolises of Pydna around ancient Pydna and beside the ancient road from Methone in the north to Dion in the south. The oldest tombs are from the Bronze Age, the youngest from the early Christian period. Smaller tumuli have been eroded over the centuries and are now no longer visible. Most excavations have had to be carried out as rescue excavations. The finds, both in ancient Pydna and in the necropolises, show a shrinking population during the period of the second Greek colonization.
