A group of students from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki conducted successful excavations at the archaeological site of Philippi, located in Greece. They managed to find the head of the statue of Apollo, dated to the 2nd or the beginning of the 3rd century AD.

The excavation was led by Professor Natalya Pulos with the assistance of other researchers and students who discovered the statue during the expedition. This was announced by the Greek Ministry of Culture.

They continued their research to the east of the city's main southern road. There they found a marble road, and also discovered a coin of Emperor Leo VI, which helped to determine the duration of use of this road.

One of the most impressive artifacts discovered during last year's excavations is a statue of Hercules. Recent finds include the head of a statue of an elderly man, which probably belongs to a statue of the god Apollo. Scientists believe that in ancient times it decorated the fountain.

Apollo is one of the Olympian deities in classical Greek and Roman religion, as well as in Greek and Roman mythology. He was recognized as the god of archery, music and dance, truth and prophecy, healing and disease, the Sun and light, poetry and much more.

One of the most important and complex Greek gods, he is the son of Zeus and Summer and twin brother of Artemis, goddess of the hunt. He is considered the most beautiful god and is the ideal of the Kuros.
