"The excavations by Manolis Andronikos at Vergina, the likely site of Aigai, have provided substantial evidence for the burials of members of the Macedonian royal family.1 The wealth that has emerged from the excavation of tomb II, the so-called Tomb of Philip II that lay beneath the Great Tumulus at Vergina, has been awe-inspiring. The gold larnax, ivory-decorated couch, gold-decorated purple cloth, and silver plate point to the burial of an individual of high - and surely royal - status in Macedonian society. The reconstructed face of the individual placed in tomb II has convinced many that Philip II was indeed buried in this tomb.2
Yet the weight inscriptions found on some of the pieces of silver plate from
the tomb pose a question about the possible date of the burial, and appear
to support instead an identification of the principal occupant of the tomb
as Philip III Arrhidaios. "

Intersecting perspective and one that I would like to see the scholarly reviews on the paper, however, it does not change certain facts that from a coronary perspective, the skeletal remains match Philip II quite convincingly and eliminate Arrhidaeus very convincingly, and being he is the only ither candidate that simoly reinforces the Philip II argument. in addition, stylisticly the tomb is of Philips generation and in addition the hunting scene depicted only makes sense in the context of Alexander's relationship to his father, Arrhidaeus can't be made to fit it in relation to what we know of his life and relation to Philip as the not not-heir child.

There is obviously a question if this is true or not. I think Greece should let a bi partisan team constructed from all over the world to dig around the tomb and in the tomb. This way the pros can put a rest to this mystery. If Greece declines than they are obviously hiding something.

There is no question. There will always be alternative theories regardless and that is why scholars debate the evidence, and before you go sprouting conspiracy theories be aware there are Greek scholars who hold it is Arrhidaeus as well. They are just not right.

Just like your whack job archaeologist with wrist watch issues who thinks he will find Alexander 's tomb in his front yard. Implausible, unfounded and lunatic, but an alternative theory one could say.

The evidence to date validates Andronikos original thesis that it is Phillip II in the tomb.

I'm not completely convinced that it is the right Fillip you found. This is why a team of bright new archaeologists needs to come and investigate. Preferably NATGEO. It's rare they investigate Greece like they do Egypt and Greece is the supposed father of everything. I know Greeks are living Dinosaurs and it's about time you proove it to the world.
If you are who you say you are than you should welcome this challenge. If not than you will do the usual Greek finger pointing and insults.

Well, most people are convinced it is Philip II, myself included.

Of course you realize that it has been more than 30 years since they excavated and archaeologists and historians have reviewed all the findings and debated and published on it? What do you expect this new team will find, a big plaque buried deep that says Phillipovski was here?

Lol I'm just saying Greece has something to hide. As fathers of everything you rarely see them on TV like Egypt. You know findings are just a matter of opinion. Even popular ones. For example I believe there is no way the T Rex was a land animal. In my personal opinion it was an alligator type of animal that lived in the river and pond banks. Also I think the feet were webbed and that goes for all it's previous relatives with recurved teeth. You see sometimes popular opinion is just a progression of other peoples thoughts and not your own interpretations.

No, Greece has nothing to hide. Sure, it being Philip II gives it more pizzaz, but even if it were Arhiddaeus the tomb, stunning grave goods, the site and museum would still be there, and would still wow the many who visit. In fact, the Arhhidaeus proponents beleive the armour in there is actually Alexanders, so that is even more spectacular arguably. To put into perspective, Tutenkhanen was a nobody as a pharoah, doesnt change nothing about his popularity now for tourists and all those interested in ancient Egypt.

No, nothing really would change but an "I".

A skeleton thought by some to be that of King Filip II of Macedon, is not, in fact, that of the accomplished military leader and father of Alexander the Great, but rather one of Alexander's half brothers, Filip III Arrhidaeus, a far less prominent figure in the ancient world, according to a new study published in the April 21 edition of the journal Science.

Recent research has indicated that the style of the artifacts in the royal tomb dated to approximately 317 B.C., a generation after Filip's assassination at his daughter's wedding in 336 B.C.
