  1. A Roman statue of the Greek mythological figure Hercules was reportedly discovered in northern Greece, according to a report from Heritage Daily. North of the modern city of Kavala stood the ancient city of Philippi, where the discovery took place. When they excavated the region, researchers from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki discovered the statue. The most well-known moniker for Heracles, the son of Zeus, in the Roman language is Hercules, the son of Jupiter. He was a very powerful figure in mythology who was seen as a protector of the vulnerable. When King Philip II of Macedon, the paternal grandfather of Alexander the Great, captured the area in 356 BC, the settlement was given the name Philippi. The city was once a part of the Byzantine Empire, but it was most likely abandoned after the Ottomans acquired control. According to the Greek Culture Ministry, Roman statues were frequently employed to ornament buildings up until the late Byzantine period, which would place the statue's placement in a structure from the 8th or 9th century AD. The statue is believed to be almost 2,000 years old and dates to the second century AD. According to a news release from the ministry, Hercules is shown in the monument as having a young body. The club was discovered in pieces, and a lion was dangling from the left hand of the statue, confirming that it was Hercules. He wears a wreath made of vine leaves on the earl's crest, which is secured at the rear by a band that terminates at the shoulders. Full article here: https://www.jpost.com/archaeology/article-718941
