Archaeologists uncover important tomb from reign of Alexander the Great
Archaeologists in Greece have discovered a vast tomb that they believe is connected with the reign of the warrior-king Alexander the Great, who conquered vast swathes of the ancient world between Greece and India.
The tomb, dating to around 300 BC, may have held the body of one of Alexander's generals or a member of his family. It was found beneath a huge burial mound near the ancient site of Amphipolis in northern Greece.
Antonis Samaras, Greece's prime minister, visited the dig on Tuesday and described the discovery as "clearly extremely significant"....
The article itself is quite interesting, but the history of Alexander's generals should point Christians do something that is even more important. The age of the Maccabees and their influence on the culture that Jesus was born into. I seriously doubt that this general, is this be a tomb of an Alexandrian general he would not be one of the Ptolemies or Seleucids. even had a short course at church about them this year. You can find a rather detailed account about the http://www.blueletterbible.org/search/Dictionary/viewTopic.cfm?topic=IT0005649 (Maccabees)here. If you have a copy of the ISBE in a Bible program, this would be the same article that is in it.
