NAUPAKTOS - 2002
Type of Operation
Naupaktos, junction of Pausanias Street and an unnamed road (O.T. 184: property of A. Dimitropoulou). F. Saranti (then Στ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports on excavation on a plot immediately to the north of the known Middle Helladic settlement at Limni-Kephalovrysi. A dense, irregular heap of stones containing a large number of stone grinders was found in the southwest part of the plot. To the south, a strong retaining wall ran east-west: dated by pottery to the Archaic period, this is the only structure of this period yet found at Nafpaktos. To the east the wall was destroyed: to the west, it continued beyond the boundaries of the plot, noting the previous discovery of a similar wall a little further west on the Bakatsia property. Beneath the stone mound lay a small stretch of a wall with associated Middle Helladic pottery. Smaller stone piles may also have been created after the destruction of the prehistoric settlement.
