Palaikastro, Mesonisi. Ch. Sophianou (ΚΔ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of a looted chamber tomb. The tomb, with an entrance passage to the west, contained four larnakes (plus sherds from another four) with many bones in and around them. Fifteen pots (cups, small amphorae, prochoi, prochoiskoi and miniature vases) were recovered. Beneath one larnax was a burial with a gold ring and a bronze mirror. Bones from previous burials were gathered next to it, by the east wall of the chamber. The decoration of the larnakes suggests that the tomb was in continuous use from Late Minoan IIIA to Late Minoan IIIB.
