Cleopatra Eurydice of Macedon's mandible (lower jaw) bone. Cleopatra was the last wife of King Philip II of Macedon. This bone was found in Tomb I at the Great Tumulus at Aigai, near modern Vergina, Greece. Age estimation techniques show the body to be that of a female around 18 years old, which is consistent with Cleopatra's age at death. Also in the tomb were the remains of Phillip II and the couple's newborn son.
