Type of Operation
Ministry of Culture and Tourism: Γ' ΕΠΚΑ
Junction of 195 Lenorman and Amphiaraou Streets. Ch. Stoupa (Γ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of part of a Late Roman-Early Byzantine building at a site northeast of Plato’s Academy and northwest of the Hippios Kolonos (Figs 1,2).
The twin area Γ and Δ forms the first and central section of the excavated part of the complex (Fig. 1). To its northwest, areas Ε and Στ form a second section, and a hall then develops to the southwest. Little evidence was found to indicate a use for the building, but it is possibly related to workshops. Ceramics and coins date the construction to the fourth century AD, while the destruction layer dates to the late sixth-early seventh century, when two graves were set into area Γ.
AD 56-59 (2001-2004) Chr., 231-233.
