Ancient Epidauros, B and Γ archaeological zones. Ch. Piteros (Director, Δ' ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of antiquities in several locations within the protected B and Γ zones around ancient Epidauros.
In the Γ zone (Gialasi, N. Pitidis Street, 900m south of the modern village) Roman roof tiles of Laconian type, a deposit of sherds of small domestic amphorae, Roman lekanes and kraters, and the stone foundations of a Roman house were found on the property of the Tsoli brothers, close to the Kalogeriko house (the ground floor of which dates to the Middle Byzantine period). A further 220m west, scattered Roman roof tiles were found on the property of T. Beka.
In the B zone, 7m south of the junction between the public road to Gialasi and the lane leading to Gliati, what is probably the bed of the ancient road to Epidauros runs northwest-southeast. Trenching alongside the modern road from the village of ancient Epidauros and the ancient theatre to Gliati revealed Byzantine roof tiles and part of a wall with lime plaster at a location 14.2−33.5m north along the road.
