The Battle of Gaugamela

Post by hiphys » Sun Apr 21, 2019 5:46 pm

Professor Daniele Morandi Bonacossi (University of Udine, Italy) has found the place where Alexander defeated Darius for the second time at Gaugamela. The site is called now Tell Gamel and he found here many hellenistic reliefs with winged victories, horsemen, and Argead stars.

Today, anniversary of the Battle of Gaugamela, I found another link with news, photos, and video concerning the archaeological mission, called "Land of Nineveh" that discovered the site of the famous Battle: http://www.nationalgeographic.it/.../ar ... _sco.../1/
