Apparently the twin chambered tomb at Vergina, has been confirmed to be that of Alexander the Great's father, Phillip II, and his Scythian warrior wife[Amazon?]






A team of Greek researchers has confirmed that bones found in a two-chambered royal tomb at Vergina, a town some 100 miles away from Amphipolis's mysterious burial mound, indeed belong to the Macedonian King Philip II, Alexander the Great's father.

Find out how this seemingly impossible task might have been accomplished.

The anthropological investigation examined 350 bones and fragments found in two larnakes, or caskets, of the tomb. It uncovered pathologies, activity markers and trauma that helped identify the tomb's occupants.


Along with the cremated remains of Philip II, the burial, commonly known as Tomb II, also contained the bones of a woman warrior, possibly the daughter of the Skythian King Athea, Theodore Antikas, head of the Art-Anthropological research team of the Vergina excavation, told Discovery News.

Those artifacts are beautiful. I've always admired the detail on sculptures from the past. Seeing them up close is the best. They've survived for centuries and still remain powerful. S + F

Once before they thought they had the burial of Phillip II but were mistaken as noted in this link:

Not quite Phillip the II

Well, yes. The garments of Adam were said to endow certain mystical abilities, just like the gem of Noah which was probably used to light the arc.

There are countless relics from antiquity that are rumored to have been passed down until lost that were of a very special nature.

I have heard it rumored before that the armor of several Cesar's (which was the armor of Alexander taken from his tomb) had woven into it parts of the fabric from the garments of Adam. I dont think so, but the existence of the garments of Adam, like many other items found in Jewish lore and mysticism from our remote antiquity are said to be hidden away for the day /the birth of the righteous...some are just lost because they were placed in the hand of the unrighteous.

tzohar taaseh, is a light hidden from the world since the days of Noah that will be revealed to the righteous. Its a shame other items like the sword of methuselah and such were lost to petty kings and their temporal rule.

EDIT TO ADD:
The Expulsion from Paradise
21The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them. 22Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever

it is said that the skin used was from one of the primordial beasts that the lord /LORDS made for ONE OF the destructions of the earth or was from a beast that was LEFT OVER from the last version of creation.


Nimrod claimed his kingship on the ground of victory over his enemies; his priesthood, however, he claimed by virtue of possessing "the garment of Adam." The legends of the Jews assure us that it was by virtue of owning this garment that Nimrod was able to claim power to rule over the whole earth, and that he sat in his tower while men came and worshiped him. The Apocryphal writers, Jewish and Christian, have a good deal to say about this garment.

To quote one of them: "the garments of skin which God made for Adam and his wife, when they went out of the garden, were given . . . after the death of Adam . . . to Enoch"; hence they passed to Methusaleh, and then to Noah, from whom Ham stole them as the people were leaving the ark. Ham's grandson Nimrod obtained them from his father Cush. As for the legitimate inheritance of this clothing, a very old fragment recently discovered says that Michael "disrobed Enoch of his earthly garments, and put on him his angelic clothing," taking him into thepresence of God.

Hans,

 Time and further investigations have yielded a new outlook.

From your article

 

"The skeleton presents a conspicuous paradox," says Bartsiokas. "It is almost complete. Usually cremated skeletons are little more than a pile of small fragmented bones. Until now, Boone had realized that this completeness was owing to dry cremation. This is a characteristic specific to Arrhidaeus as no other Macedonian king is known to have had a dry cremation."


archive.archaeology.org...

And from the new study,




Examination of the bones revealed a fully-fleshed cremation, further disproving the theory that the remains belong to Philip III Arrhidaeus, who was buried, exhumed, cremated and finally reburied.


"Features such as cracking, color, warping, twisting seen on the bones indicate pyre-induced morphological alterations," Antikas said.


"A typical example is the 90-degree twisting of the left parietal bone of the man's cranium. This would never happen, if the skull were 'dry', coming from an ossuary," he added.



And regarding the female warrior,



 From new study



Ongoing investigations carried by Maniatis might reveal the nature and origins of the puzzling composite material. According to the researchers, further evidence for the dead being Philip II is the identity of the female buried in the antechamber, who died at 30 to 34.


"Her age was determined by examining a pelvis bone fragment not seen or identified by previous researchers," Antikas said.

The finding proved extremely important in the complex identification process.


"Basically her age excludes every other wife-concubine of Philip II and indirectly Arrhidaeus, whose wife was under 25," he said.


Morphological alterations in the bones indicate she was cremated just after her death, just like the deceased in the chamber, while equestrian activity indicators suggest she also rode for a long time.


A fracture in the upper end of her left leg caused shortening, atrophy, "and most probably disfiguration," according to Antikas.


"This leads to the conclusion that the pair of mismatched greaves -- the left is shorter -- the Scynthian gorytus and weaponry found in the antechamber belonged to her," he said.
