Necropolis in the Classical period

Necropolis in the Classical period

In the 5th century BC, the cemetery of Aigai becomes denser and is expanded around the core of the Archaic necropolis.

This expansion continues well through the 4th century BC, although now the necropolis spreads mainly to the north-west, where, in 336 BC, the tomb of Philip II will be built.
