Notice
Anc. Gitani.  G. Riginos (Η’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports that cleaning revealed the limits of the central arterial roads (6 and 12) as well as part of a paved road near building 20. At the west end of road 6, northwest of the small temple (building 25), a rock-cut deposit was cleared, containing much pottery including intact vessels. Removal of fallen material over road 1 revealed a stone water channel.  Removal of collapse levels over building 59 (16 x 17m) revealed that the building had at least seven rooms or courts. On the site of the future visitor centre, eight tombs were excavated, oriented north south, plus four inurned cremations inserted into hollows in the rock. Outside the tombs, five concentrations of small vessels were likely offerings to the dead. The most usual grave offerings were lachrymateria, lekythoi, lamps and pyxides (oinochoae being used as ash urns). One tomb contained a collection of metal medical instruments as well as vases.
