Inclusion of the northern Greece archaeological site of Philippe in Unesco’s list of World Heritage Sites will be decided at the organization’s annual conference, which will take place next month in Istanbul.

Representatives of 21 countries will vote on the proposal for Philippi over the weekend of July 16-17.
