Plaka. Continued clearance of walls at 9 Tholou Street and Klepsydras (see AR 51 [2004−2005], 3) revealed fragments of funerary kioniskoi (two preserving inscriptions), many architectural members, including a Middle Byzantine capital (Fig. 1), part of a relief preserving the left foot and hand of a woman holding a vessel and a sarcophagus fragment with garland and bucranium decoration. Further removal of walls at 16 Panos Street (AR 49 [2002−2003], 4) exposed part of an inscribed kioniskos and an inscribed base. Ottoman house walls and a sewer were found in the yard of a property at 19 Tholou Street, and architectural fragments were removed during clearance at 2 Taxiarchon Street and Dexippou. Excavations at 6 Poikilis Street revealed inscribed fragments of a stele and plinth, while at 2 Erechtheos Street and 24 Diogenous Street, three walls were revealed in the northeast of the plot. Finds included a number of inscriptions (one reported as ΕΥΚΛΕΣ) and sculptural fragments of a robed arm, a male head, the right thigh of a male statue and a section of drapery. At 7 Mitroou Street, a column of grey marble, possibly funerary, was recovered.
