Argos, Aigaiou Pelagous Street, Kapodistriou Lane (O.T. 24, G. Ksakousti and G. Ksabla property). Ch. Piteros (Director, Δ' ΕΠΚΑ) reports on further excavation of this plot, immediately northeast of the Cultural Centre of Argos.
Previous rescue excavation had revealed an ancient road-bed along the north side (ADelt 46  Chr, 102). Excavation in 2000, again in the north, uncovered black earth, ash and kiln debris, plus Byzantine fill. Beneath this was an ancient road with three construction phases and, in the lowest levels, silt deposits. The bronze balance rod of a pair of Early Byzantine scales was found in a Late Roman well (Fig. 1).
