Type of Operation
Triantaphyllia. The Ζ’ ΕΠΚΑ reports the discovery and excavation by G. Hatzi and O. Vikatou, following the fires of 2007-2008, of a Mycenaean tholos tomb (maximum diameter 3.83m) containing burials, in pits, which date from LH IIA to LH IIIA2 (figs 1-2). Two further tholoi are noted. These are the first Mycenaean tholos tombs to have been found in Elis north of the Alpheios. Research in the associated settlement on a neighbouring hill began in 2010.
On the same site were found a large fourth to third-century BC agricultural residence and graves contemporary with it.
