Paramithas (Chaniotakis property). S. Apostolakou (Director, ΚΔ' ΕΠΚΑ) reports on excavations conducted in 2000. Twenty five first- to second-century AD tombs (Fig. 1) were found in the north of this plot, adding to the total of 62 previously discovered (see ADelt 52  Chr, 1047-49). They were arranged in three groups, broadly aligned east-west. Almost all contained single burials in supine position with the head to the east (there are two examples of multiple burial), and with the exception of one pit grave, all are tile graves made of Corinthian-type tiles. Most have been robbed: among the few surviving goods are clay vases, lamps, parts of bronze vessels and pins, and a few bronze coins.
