Macedonian tomb of Stavroupoli

The tomb of Stavroupoli is the largest, best preserved and most impressive Macedonian tomb in Thrace. It is located south of Stavroupoli not far from the road that leads to Komnina. Based on its architectural shape and the findings discovered in its interior it dates back to the first half of 4th century B.C. It is probably historically connected to a settlement located 500m south in Mitikas Komninos location and which had a long history starting from the early Iron Era (9th – 8th centuries B.C.) up to the Byzantine period.
The tomb’s atrium is 3.13m wide and 2.12m long. The door that leads to the burial room was closing with two large door panels. The Macedonian tomb of Komninos is the best preserved and most impressive tomb found in Thrace. From time to time scientists do excavations in the area but these are not as organized or as intensive as they should be in order to be able to find a settlement. In 1993 archeologists found some figurines and statuettes which probably come from Asclepius temple.
