Lead on Alexander the Great’s Tomb is a Hoax!

alexander the great

A few days ago, online sources claimed that a team of archaeologists and historians from the Polish Center of Archaeology had found the tomb of Alexander the Great in a marbled and golden mausoleum in in downtown Alexandria, only 60 meters away from the Mosque of Nebi Daniel.

However, the site was not Alexander’s tomb and the story seems to be a hoax started by a parody website. The website didn’t give any clues about the fake story, or why this subject could be used for parody.

Alexander the Great died in Babylon in the summer of 323 BC. In his brief reign he not only conquered the greatest part of the then known world, but brought vast changes to the regions of the empire that he built.

His life and deeds, as well as his death and burial, became a legend for future generations, far beyond the lands he had conquered.

Most popular theories suggest that Alexander might be buried in his homeland of Macedonia, or Egypt, either in Alexandria, or the the western desert oasis of Siwa.

  1. NOOOOO! This is originally from a satirical site called the World Daily News. IT IS NOT TRUE AT ALL!

  2. Has someone verified this as a hoax yet? I would love to find the tomb and i am saddened when I hear things like this, only to have them be false later…Please oh gods if ye are listening, let this be real.

  3. It may have been there but after when the muslims invaded Egypt, his body was transferred back to his birthplace, Greece..

  4. Lets hope that this is the tomb , and we can use it as a symbol of the rebirth of true Hellenism that is already under way .

  5. Yeah but this is the problem – neither the original story nor this story actually explain why they’re true. Why was it a hoax? What part of the story was lied about? Based on what?

  6. Study Reincarnation and your earlier lifetimes; these can go back in time millennia. Such might reveal interesting historical data. Earlier reincarnation memories could be useful in Archaeological research. past life memories could provide information on human origins and daily life in ancient civilizations, languages, linguistics, sciences, technology etc.
