TOMB RAIDERS

Cleopatra & Marc: Together Forever?

Breaking news from ancient Egypt: Archaeologists suspect star-crossed lovers Cleopatra and Marc Antony are buried together in a temple near Alexandria. The scientists have been excavating the temple for three years, and they think they’re close to finding Cleopatra’s tomb—they’ve found an alabaster head from a Cleopatra statue and a mask they believe belonged to Marc Antony. “We know from Plutarch they were buried together, and it took her permission to be buried in Alexandria,” said the general secretary of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities. The lovers committed suicide in 30 B.C., after their defeat in the battle of Actium.
