Argyroupoli. At the east entrance to the Argyroupoli Metro station a section of the ancient Astiki Odos (40m long, 4.7−5m wide) came to light. This was the main highway west of Hymettos which runs parallel to modern Vouliagmenis Avenue. Traces of wheel ruts ran along the street; other finds include dozens of nails and metal parts of wagons, coins, small vases and fragments of beehive. The road led from the city through the Diomean Gate, southwest of the Olympieion to Sounion and the Lavriotiki. Workshops, including a dyer’s shop, cemeteries and individual burials have also come to light during excavations undertaken in the last three years in the municipalities of Argyroupoli, Ag. Dimitrios, Daphni and Nea Smyrni.
