Heuzey and Bella clusters

Two adjacent clusters of tombs initially covered by two different tumuli, containing in total five monumental Macedonian tombs and three cist tombs.

In the space lying between them, stone circular enclosures (periboloi) mark the position of late Hellenistic burials. The burial clusters are found on the eastern edge of the “Cemetery of the Tumuli”, very close to the present-day village of Palatitsia. This burial complex most probably belonged to a prominent family of Aigai that chose to bury there its members from the late 4th century up to the 2nd century BC.
