Example text

Bartsiokas claimed that such an interval for “drying” only occurred for Philip III because he was reburied some while after his death. Musgrave has established that there had been no such drying, the bones were cremated when “wet,” and simply on this one point, the bones could therefore be either Philip II’s or Philip III’s. What, for Borza and Palagia, was “even more important” turns out to be wrong. Musgrave’s conclusions rest on his extensive photography over a matter of days (not hours) and on repeated visits (not one) to the bones, which are especially valuable because the subsequent gluing and the repairs which the bones later underwent had not occurred to such an extent at the time of his examination.
