ARGOS - 2008
Type of Operation
Argos, Herakleous Street (properties of A. Koutroubi and K. Theodoropoulou). The Δ’ ΕΠΚΑ reports the discovery of building remains of many periods on two plots close to the southeast slope of the Profitis Ilias hill. Hellenistic (fourth- to third-century) remains include stone house walls houses, three dumps of domestic pottery, and three cremation burials.
A built cist tomb used for more than one burial, and two enchytrismoi (without accompanying goods) in a krater with upswung handles and a pithos, show the use of the area for burial in Geometric and Archaic times. Middle Helladic and Mycenaean remains comprise multi-room stone-walled houses, an oval clay hearth, and a stone-paved area. (Figs 1-2). Within this settlement were two built cist tombs, one of which contained an LH IA alabastron.
