Moschato. Test trenches at Thessalonikis 90−92, in a probable cemetery area outside the southern arm of the Long Walls, produced a fourth-century BC marble lekythos (Fig. 1) preserving the scene of a dexiosis between a seated old woman wearing a chiton with a himation covering her head and a standing young female dressed in a long chiton, belted peplos and himation. Further along the same street (no. 42, Photopoulou property) was a fourth-century inscribed marble cylindrical base for a loutrophoros with part of the foot still leaded into it: it is inscribed ΑΠΗΜΑΝΤΟΣ ΚΟΛΛΥΤΕΥΣ (Fig. 2).
M. Petritaki, ADelt 55 (2000) Chr, 102−03; AR 56 (2009-2010), 13.
