Pappadates. M. Stavropoulou-Gatsi (then Στ' ΕΠΚΑ, now Director, ΛΣτ' ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery, by the southern approach to the village, of a stone cist tomb (oriented northwest-southeast) covered with Laconian tiles and with a stone headrest. It contains a single burial with a kantharos and an echinus bowl of the second half of the third century BC. On the southwest side of the road are groups of tombs or an entire cemetery (probably the west cemetery of the ancient city). Thus the extra mural cemetery should be located towards the northeast plain area (between the villages of Pappadates and Mataranga: see ADelt 51  Chr, 242−44).
