ARGOS - 2001
Type of Operation
Argos, Diomedes Street, Cultural Centre of the Demos of Argos (Konstantinopouleio). Ch. Piteros (Δ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of the walls and gravel floor of a Late Byzantine house east of the Cultural Centre building, and beneath it the remains of an earlier, fifth- to sixth-century AD building with two strata of tiled floors. Finds include domestic and glazed pottery, coins, pieces of an ionic column capital, a marble statue and marble wall revetment, parts of a set of scales, a bronze earring, knife, ring, and spurs (?), glass, a terracotta amphoriskos, and a zoomorphic vessel. On the lowest floor were domestic pottery and a wineglass.
Limited deeper excavation produced Classical black-glaze pottery, a small area of a pebble floor mosaic, Archaic Corinthian and Late Geometric sherds, a decorated tile and part of an ionic column capital. Along the east side of the excavation ran an orthostat wall which is the continuation (southeast-northwest) of that previously found on the Plati-Xixi/Diamanti property to the north.
