Archaeologists have unearthed a vast circular tomb in Greece's northeast region of Macedonia, distinguished by two sphinxes and frescoed walls that date to 300-325 B.C.Archaeologists believe the apparently unlooted Amphipolis grave, which is surrounded by a surprisingly long and well-built wall with courses of marble decoration, may have belonged to a senior ancient official.Situated about 100 kilometers northeast of Greece's second-biggest city Thessaloniki, the Amphipolis site, the ministry official said, appeared to be the largest ancient tomb discovered in Greece. Archaeologists, who began excavating the site in 2012, expect to enter the tomb by the end of the month to determine out who was buried there.
