Notice
Argyroupoli, Leontos, Marathonomachon, Megalou Alexandrou and Eleutheria Streets (OT 87, property of Ford Kondellis). Konstantina Kaza-Papageorgiou (ΚΣΤ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of a 56m-long road, running southeast-northwest. The road was 5 - 5.5m wide and had retaining walls on either side; it had been resurfaced several times during the Classical period, with visible wheel-ruts from all phases of road construction/repair. Fourth-century BC sherds and metal tools were excavated from it. The road was used in Roman times, but was converted into a pathway during the Byzantine/ Late Byzantine period.  A pithos burial with grave offerings of the first quarter of the fifth century lay 12m southwest of the road. A second pithos burial and a pyre lay nearby. Further south, a pit unworked stones and a few sixth- and fifth-century sherds.  Rock-cut drainage channels 20m southwest of the road contained pottery of the second half of the fifth and the fourth centuries.
