Kissamos. Health Centre plot. S. Markoulaki (ΚΕ' ΕΠΚΑ) reports on continuing excavation in 1999-2000 (see previously AR 49 [2002-2003], 87; Kritiki Estia , 270-71). New rooms were discovered in the southern and eastern parts of this Roman villa, including a kitchen and a private bath-suite. Within the now semi-roofed area of the Health Centre was a room with immediate access to a paved public road (with a drain below), which confirms that the villa occupied an entire insula in the urban plan. It also provides further evidence for the impact of the earthquake of AD 365 (estimated at 10 on the Richter Scale): in addition to a destruction level, it adds to evidence obtained from other excavations in Kissamos for the establishment of open-air kitchens and bread ovens by the roadside to meet the temporary needs of the local population.
