2,100-year-old burial of woman lying on bronze ‘mermaid bed’ unearthed in Greece

Archaeologists have unearthed the ancient tomb of a woman lying on a bronze bed near the town of Kozani in northern Greece. It dates from the first century BC

Depictions of mermaids adorn the bedposts. The bed also features an image of a bird holding a snake in its mouth, a symbol of the ancient Greek god Apollo. The woman’s head was covered with gold laurel leaves that were likely part of a wreath, Areti Chondrogianni-Metoki, director of the Ephorate of Antiquities of Kozani, told Live Science in an email. The wooden parts of the bed are decomposed.
