Archaeologists will use ‘CSI’-like technology to study 2500-year-old remains near Athens

More than 2,500 years ago, an Athenian nobleman named Cylon — the first recorded Olympic champion — tried to take over the city of Athens and install himself as its sole ruler.

According to Thucydides and Herodotus, Athenian and Greek historians who wrote about the coup, Cylon enticed an army of followers to enter the city and lay siege to the Acropolis.

They were defeated, but Cylon managed to escape.

Now archaeologists in Athens believe they may have found some of the remains of Cylon’s army in a mass grave in Phaleron, four miles south of downtown Athens.

The discovery of the 80 skeletons of men is “unequaled” in Greece, said site project director Stella Chrysoulaki.

The men, young and well-fed, were found lying in the unmarked grave in three rows, some on their backs while others were tossed facedown on their stomachs.

Skeletal human remains discovered north of Raymond Tuesday

A thinning crew operating in a heavily wooded area about four miles north of Raymond discovered skeletal human remains Tuesday.

According to Pacific County Sheriff’s Office Chief Criminal Deputy Pat Matlock, the thinning crew reported the discovery in the area of Smith Creek. “We secured the scene and did a full crime scene investigation,” he said. “As a matter of protocol treated the site as a crime scene even though we didn’t know what exactly we had.”

Investigators worked at the scene until around noon Wednesday, collecting any evidence they could find. The investigation is ongoing. As of Friday morning an autopsy had not yet been performed and the condition of the remains did not offer any obvious explanation as to the time and manner of death.

“What we plan to do is try to gain the identity of the remains through dental records or DNA,” said Matlock.
