В районе греческой деревни Вергина были обнаружены остатки древней столицы Македонии - города Эги. В городе раскопан царский дворец конца IV. до н.э., руины театра, в котором был убит македонский царь Филипп II, храмы и т.д.



Vergina, a village in Imathia, is 12 km from Veroia, 75 km from Thessaloniki, and 515 km from Athens. It has enjoyed worldwide renown in the past few decades, owing to the discovery there of the ancient city of Aigai, the ancient capital of the Macedonian kings, and its cemetery. Of particular note are the tombs of the royal dynasty, most notably King Philip II and a young prince who is identified as Alexander IV, and a cist grave. The royal tombs were discovered in 1977-8 by the archaeologist Manolis Andronikos.
