Krane. A. Soteriou (Director, ΛΕ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports a series of discoveries in the course of road construction. A deposit of Geometric and Archaic pottery, plus sixth-century kilns, indicate a potter’s workshop a short distance from the Kasteli and Pezoules hills. In the same direction and in contact with the hills lay the Late Hellenistic and Early Roman craft quarter, including a potter’s workshop. Masses of fired clay and large sherd deposits were found, plus stamped amphora handles including the names ΞΕΝΩΝΟΣ, ΖΩΠΑΣ, and ΑΠΟΛΛΩΝΙΔΑΣ (fig. 1). Sections of cobbled roads add to the city’s network. Extensive Early Christian building complexes close to the sea are related to harbour installations (fig. 2). Part of a public building found on the same site cannot yet be characterised or dated.
The ancient road which ran through the city towards the cemetery was made accessible at Drakospilia, and the monumental city wall was uncovered at Razata (fig. 3).
