Argos, Karaoli and Dimitriou Streets (O.T. 107-111, property of I. Kalantzi). A. Banaka-Dimaki (Δ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of a 10m-long stretch of wall running northeast-southwest at a depth of 3.07m below street level. The wall continued beyond the plot, and despite the poor preservation and shortage of portable finds, may be associated with a fourth-century to Hellenistic road on the same orientation found just to the southwest of the Kalantzi...

Argos, Parodos Papalexopoulou (property of K. Nikolopoulou). A. Banaka-Dimaki (Δ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of the walls of Hellenistic structures dug into Geometric fills. The varying orientation of the buildings indicates at least two construction phases. A two-roomed structure in the northwest corner of the plot belongs to the better-preserved phase; one room contained a clay structure within which were found pieces of brick, one or two sherds of a plate and a bronze coin. Finds...

Argos, junction of Danopoulou and Kanellopoulou Streets (property of G. Ioannidi). A. Banaka-Dimaki (Δ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of settlement remains and burials. A gravel surface extending along the north side of the plot was defined by a wall on the south side. Removal of the gravel revealed that the wall originally defined the south side of a building with two preserved rooms, which extended beyond the plot. One preserved the original stone-paved floor. A further similar wall...
