ANCIENT KROMNA - Perdikaria - 2005
Type of Operation
Perdikaria (anc. Kromna). V. Tassinos (ΛΖ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the excavation of an extensive Early Geometric and late sixth- to early fifth-century cemetery, following the destruction of graves during earth moving. Eighteen late Archaic-early Classical sarcophagoi and a pit grave with a child burial were found: this later cemetery was established directly over four Early Geometric cist graves. Only one of the Geometric graves contained offerings (a pair of bronze spirals), but the later tombs mostly contained local and imported pottery, bronze and iron finds (rings and pins), and organic remains (egg shells). An altar with mostly Archaic sherds were found.
