Three more beehive tombs have recently come to light in Northern Greece. One of these, at Goura in Phthiotis, was discovered in April or May (1896) by lime-burners, and promptly converted into a lime-kiln. It resembled the tomb at Demini, was closed by a great oblong stone, and yielded various gold and silver ornaments as well as finely painted vases.
