TOMBS AT DERVENI
A necropole of Ancient Lete. Six tombs, pit graves, cist tombs, and one built of Macedonian type were discovered by chance in 1962 in the region around Derveni, 10 klm. NW of Thessaloniki. Some of them were unlooted. They contained male and female cremations and burials with rich offerings, dated to the last quarter of the 4th century BC. The offerings were luxurious metal, clay and glass vases, gold jewellery, iron weapons and bronze strigilis. Tomb A and B are the most important ones, recent archaeological research at the same hill, brought to light some other significant tombs.
