SPARTA Acropolis - 2009
Type of Operation
Ministry of Culture and Tourism: 5th EBA.
Sparta Acropolis. K. Diamanti (5th EBA) reports on work on the Byzantine church on the south slope of the acropolis, which is in contact with the west side of the curved retaining wall of the so-called round building. Work in 2008 and 2009 fully exposed the exterior of the church. Inside, on the line of the north colonnade of the altar and to the west, was part of a slightly projecting, orthogonal structure; only the foundation of the corresponding structure to the east is preserved. These are parts of the support for the church roof. There are traces of plaster with painted decoration on the interior face of the north wall (the best preserved). The walls, built of unworked stones bound in lime plaster, incorporate architectural spolia, with blocks at the angles.
