KOUROUPETOS - 2009
Type of Operation
Archaeological Society at Athens
Kouroupetos. Y. Sakellarakis (ASA) reports on the excavation of a burial cave, the second to be located on the Psiloritis massif. The cave holds a LMIIIA2 warrior burial. Remains of at least three people were recovered, much damaged (as were other finds) by rock falls and the activities of shepherds. The sides and cover of a larnax were recovered, with abundant pottery including stirrup jars, jugs, cups and conical cups, a kylix and a jug; blossom and pithoid-shaped vases also occur. Metal finds are a wire bracelet, a pin and a ringband; a steatite whorl was also recovered. Under the vases and small finds, a pit contained a bronze knife and spearhead, three bronze vessels and two monochrome clay cups, one footed. These seem to have been placed there in the course of the funerary rites and before the larnax was positioned.
