:: Arqueólogos gregos acreditam ter encontrado túmulo de Aristóteles – Opera Mundi: 26/05/2016
Arqueólogos gregos acreditam ter descoberto o túmulo de Aristóteles em escavações realizadas durante mais de duas décadas na antiga cidade de Estagira, local de nascimento do filósofo. “Não temos provas, mas indícios muito fortes de que beiram a certeza”, declarou o diretor das escavações, Konstandinos Sismanidis, a veículos de imprensa locais. Sismanidis apresentou hoje os resultados no congresso internacional Aristóteles 2400 anos, realizado na Universidade de Salônica. A equipe em torno de Sismanidis chegou à conclusão de que uma construção descoberta em 1996 nas citadas escavações não pode ser outra coisa que o mausoléu de Aristóteles, após analisar dois manuscritos que faziam alusão à transferência das cinzas do filósofo para sua cidade natal.

“I have no hard proof, but strong indications lead me to an almost certainty,” said archaeologist Kostas Sismanidis who made the claim of finding Aristotle’s tomb. In his extensive research, Sismanidis first established that the tomb belongs to an important person, one who deserves to have such a lavish and respected tomb. Then, based on three different biographies and other written testimonies and analyses, written at different time periods and by authors of different origin, he comes to the conclusion that the remains of Aristotle were transferred from Chalkis, where he died, to Stagira.
