Argos, Papanikoli Street (O.T. Γ213, K. Beleri property). A. Bakourou and G. Tsekes (5th EBA) report on discoveries in an area with important Late Roman to Early Christian remains (e.g. an Early Christian basilica on the Phlorou plot on Arkadia-Messenia Streets and a Late Roman villa on the Kechagia plot on Theatre Lane).
An Early Christian house or small workshop lies in the east of the plot and extends beyond it. To the west was a small kiln (Fig. 1) and part of a round basin. Walls of a bath in the west of the plot were built of alternating brick and stone with plaster; marble revetment was preserved in one case. The entrance to the hypocaust is at the northeast. Three further walls of brick on a stone foundation likely mark the passageway surrounding the caldarium (Fig. 2).
