Archaeologists digging at a tomb dating to the era of Alexander the Great in ancient Amphipolis in northern Greece have unearthed an underground vault, the country’s Culture Ministry said.

The vault, which was discovered in the fourth chamber of the enigmatic tomb, measures 4 by 2.1 meters, the ministry said. Archaeologists also uncovered the remains of a marble door, it said. There was no indication yet is inside the vault of the discovery.

Authorities earlier this week admitted that indications that the tomb could have a gateway leading to a fourth chamber had not been confirmed by the dig which has aroused attention in the archaeological community and general interest in works that are expected to keep revealing major finds.
