Expert says old bones belonged to Cleopatra's murdered half-sister2/27/2013
Cleopatra's half-sister, is that you? Austrian archaeologist Hilke Thur will explain in a North Carolina lecture this week why she's convinced 2,000-year-old bones found in Ephesus, Turkey, are those of Cleopatra's half-sibling, Arsinoe IV (believed to have been murdered by Cleopatra and Marc Antony). The age, gender, locale and burial treatment of the skull-less skeleton all seem to point in Arsinoe's direction, yet definitive proof has been elusive. Because so many people have handled the bones, DNA testing has been inconclusive. Nevertheless, Thur says, "there may be new methods developing. There is hope." After all, look at Richard III.
