Aristotle 'is found' after 2,400 years.

THE tomb of philosopher Aristotle is said to have been found after a 20-year dig in Greece.

The 2,400-year-old crypt, with a 30ft dome and marble floor, was discovered in the ancient city of Stagira, where he was born in 384BC.

Aristotle was previously thought to be buried in Chalcis, where he died aged 62, but archaeologists now believe the people of Stagira moved his ashes.

They told the Aristotle 2,400 Years World Congress it was the most important find in the site's excavation.

Other finds included coins from the time of Alexander the Great.
