Sur le territoire de cette commune située au Sud-Est de la précédente1, les mêmes travaux2 ont permis le réexamen de sites déjà connus (v. BCH 122 [1998] Chron., p. 847 [Chronique n.12712]) et la localisation des sites nouveaux : — l'acropole fortifiée d'époque classico-hellénistique au lieu-dit Aï-Lias (v. ibid.) mesure 1,6 ha environ ; son rempart, mal conservé, est construit en pierres sèches (ép. 2,50 m) et l'on distingue à l'intérieur les restes d'une citerne ; outre...

L'exploration du site du BR, entreprise en 1994 (v. BCH 122 [1998] Chron., p. 846-847 [Chronique n.12707]), a été poursuivie en 1996 et 1997. Des sondages sur le versant Est de la toumba ont révélé de nouveaux vestiges de la terrasse artificielle déjà repérée du côté Ouest. Au sommet de la colline, la fouille a mis au jour un vaste bâtiment (murs en terre, sols enduits, foyer, four), avec pièces de stockage et espace à ciel ouvert (cour ou rue) ; on suppose la présence d'un...

L'exploration de l'habitat situé à l'Ouest de la nécropole de la fin du BR (v. BCH 124 [2000] Chron., p. 903 [Chronique n.11125]) a été achevée en 1999. L'étude du matériel confirme que cet établissement est antérieur à la nécropole et date donc du BR IIΙΑ et B. Le fouilleur n'exclut pas une certaine forme de présence mycénienne dans cette région au contact de la Thessalie. ΑΕΜΘ 13 (1999) [2001], p. 359-360 [G....

Entre 1997 et 1999, les mêmes travaux d'aménagement routier* ont amené la découverte d'une nécropole de la fin du BR au lieu-dit Stavros (v. BCH 122 [1998] Chron., p. 848 [Chronique n.12706]). Quoique pillées pour la plupart, les vingt-six tombes fouillées ont livré quelques vases à peinture mate ou mycéniens ; parmi les premiers dominent les canthares, les alabastres (fig. 1) et les tasses. Non loin du cimetière, des vestiges de constructions (fosse-dépotoir, foyers) témoignent...
