New findings were announced by lead archeologist Katerini Peristeri. After the removal of the accumulated earth, three broken pieces of a [Thasos] Marble door were found. The Marble pieces were found in the doorway of the third wall, which leads into the third chamber. The broken Marble pieces were part of a door that pivoted, as pivots points were found [above and below] in the door casing. Also found were some copper and iron nails.
Archeologists now believe this vast Tumulus is a funerary monument.
