Archaeologists working on top of a Greek mountain have made a sinister discovery: they found the skeleton of a teenager, amid several other bones and a mound of ashes. This was likely a sacrifice for the god Zeus and could confirm one of the most gruesome Greek legends.
The headless skeleton was uncovered with the bones laying on the East-West, a position thought to have a ritual significance. The skeleton was laid on top of a pile of ash made from centuries of burnt animal remains. The gruesome site was estimated to be 3,000 years old, and the sacrifices were made at a temple of Zeus, the most significant god in the Greek pantheon.
The teenager was in the supine position and buried with ceramic pottery, located on a panoramic position of the Lykaion Mountain.
