THE KASTA TOMB
The Tomb 
The Kasta Tomb, also known as the 
Amphipolis Tomb, is an ancient Macedonian tomb 
discovered in Amphipolis, Central Macedonia, in 
northern Greece in 2012 and first entered in August 
2014. The tomb is the largest burial monument ever 
discovered in Greece and by comparison dwarfs the 
tomb of Philip II of Macedon, father of Alexander 
the Great, in Vergina. The Tumulus Tomb of 
Amphipolis lies on the hill of Kasta inside a 500- 
meter long surrounding wall of marble and 
limestone. The Marble wall is almost a perfect
Simulation of the tomb as it would be with the Amphipolis Lion on its top

The Lion 
Originally on the top of the Tomb there was a 
great Stone Lion, the Lion of Amphipolis. The Lion 
it's self is 5.3 meters high and had a stone base that 
makes a total [with Lion] height of 15.84 meters. 
The sculpture who carved the two entry Sphinxes is 
the same person that sculpted the colossal Lion.
The huge lion
The entrance & 1st chamber 
The Entry of the Tomb is 13 steps down from the 
surrounding Wall. The Entry Arch contains two 
headless/wingless Sphinxes, amazing works of 
classic art which are approximately 2m tall . In 
front of the Arch and Sphinx Portal there is a 
Limestone wall protecting and concealing the entire 
entry of this vast tomb. The design of the Entry and 
surrounding wall are unique to the ancient Greece 
world. The first chamber is 6m long and 4.5m wide. 
Its spectacular floor just beyond the Sphinx Portal 
opening is in great condition (considering that it is

The 2nd chamber 
The second chamber is 4,5 meters wide and 3,0 
meters long. Its entrance was found between two 
amazing female statues of the Caryatid type which 
support the entrance to the second compartment of 
the tomb. The height of each Caryatid is 2.27 m . 
The Caryatids are on a pedestal 1.40 m tall (4.5 ft), 
making the total height of the statues 3.67 m 
The chamber floor is covered with a pictorial 
mosaic in glorious colors and detail. The mosaic 
covers the entire floor surface of the 2nd Chamber. 
It is in white, black, grey, blue, red and yellow and

The third chamber is 4.5 meters 
long and wide. Its marble door is 
broken. The parts of it as well as the 
head of the eastern Sphinx (which 
height is 60cm) and fragments of the 
Sphinxes’ wings were found during 
the excavation in the chamber. In 
front of the door, archaeologists 
found iron and bronze nails. The

UNESCO 
In response to the magnitude of the finds, the 
authorities of Central Macedonia have requested 
and were granted a heavy 24-hour police guard of 
the dig site, and have also begun procedures to have 
the Kasta Tomb included in UNESCO's list of 
World Heritage Sites as a "top priority."
Simulation of all the chambers & the entrance
Nothing has ended yet… 
During the next months, excavations will be 
continued. We have explored only a small part of 
this huge tomb and archaeologists believe that that 
there are many more thing to be found…
