Alonia, Elis. O. Vikatou (Ζ' ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of a fifth-century BC pithos burial in the course of drainage work.
The pithos (oriented north-south, with the mouth to the north, covered by a slab) contained three skeletons and a range of goods which cannot be assigned to any individual burial. These comprise a skyphos, a black-glazed hydria, two Attic lekythoi, two stemless cups, a phiale, a squat lekythos, a pointed amphoriskos, a bronze bracelet and a bronze fibula and pin (Fig. 61). The remains of a second, destroyed, pithos lay 1m away.
