6th part of Drama cultural routes - HELLENISTIC TOMB

THE HELLENISTIC TOMB at 1 Troia (Troy) Street is a monumental Macedonian type vault used from the last decades of the 3rd to the middle of the 2nd century BC. It consists of a sloping path, an antechamber and a burial chamber. The former shelters significant wall paintings, which imitate the masonry, bullheads (“búkrana”) and six-leaf rosettes, and the latter three masonry sarcophagi. The artifacts of the tomb (coins, jewelry and pottery) confirm the relation of Drama with the rest of the Hellenistic world. The vault on Troia Street is important, both from a historical and a topographic point of view, as it marks the outer East boundaries of the Hellenistic town that formerly existed in today’s location of Drama.
