SPARTA - 2008
Type of Operation
Ministry of Culture and Tourism: 5th EBA
Property of N. Panoutsakou (O.T. 127). K. Diamanti (5th EBA) reports on rescue excavation begun in 2006 and completed in 2008. Architectural remains include walls forming an orthogonal building with a doorway, and water channels, tombs (on the same northwest-southeast orientation as the church a few metres to the east), a floor mosaic, a silo, and a mortar floor. In the west part of the plot, successive building phases date to the Roman and Late Roman periods, while in the east they date to the Byzantine period although they cannot be associated specifically with the Middle Byzantine church on the Rigou plot.
Property of G. Kalopisi (O.T. 127). Rescue excavation in 2009 and 2010 revealed a system of Late Roman water channels and a floor mosaic which is likely a continuation of that on the neighbouring Panoutsakou plot.
