Type of Operation
Ministry of Culture and Tourism: Γ' ΕΠΚΑ
Plato’s Academy. Excavations ahead of the proposed building of the Archaeological Museum of the City of Athens between Drakontos and Monastiriou Streets (the northernmost expropriated area of the Academy) brought to light only a few prehistoric sherds to the east of the area: clay, sand and shingle layers are indicative of the Kephisos river. Between Kratylou and Phonos Streets, northwest of the Gymnasium or Palaestra, abundant Late Archaic pottery was found, plus some Late Geometric and a little Early Helladic, but no architectural remains.
