DAEDALUS OF OHRID, THE ONLY IN THE MEDITERANEAN


National.

The latest archaeological finding, a sculpture of the mythological flier Daedalus, the father of Icarus, was recently excavated at site Plaosnik in Ohrid and presented before Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and the media on Wednesday.

"The bronze sculpture is probably unique on the Balkans and beyond, because there is no similar one recorded in professional literature. It is believed that it dates from the Macedonian-Hellenic period, 2nd century B.C.", said director of the Bureau for Cultural Heritage Protection, archaeologist Pasko Kuzman, adding that the sculpture had an invaluable historic significance for Macedonia.

The Government finances archaeological excavations within project for revival of St. Kliment's University in Ohrid.
