Commemoration of a Royal Woman as a Warrior: The Burial in the Antechamber of Tomb II at Vergina Abstract: Despite the recent re-examination of the male and female human remains from tomb II at Vergina, it remains difficult to reconcile the osteological evidence with extant literary evidence about any one of the various royal women who might have been buried in the antechamber of the famous tomb. What does seem clear is that, for reasons of his own, the ruler who interred this woman chose to commemorate her as a woman warrior. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Syllecta Classica Department of Classics @ the University of Iowa

What does seem clear is that, for reasons of his own, the ruler who interred this woman chose to commemorate her as a woman warrior.
