On last week’s show on Journey to Thessaloniki, Greece – Episode 820 our guest despatched these corrections:
The renowned artefact – the golden larnax (the good name of “the box” I point out) and the golden grave crown from the Macedonian Tomb of Philip II, the father of Alexander the Great–are now positioned on-site in the Archaeological Museum of Vergina and not in the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki.
The trade of populations took place in 1922 –I never know why I said 1921, as this a incredibly very well-regarded fact to me and all Greeks!
