ATHENS - 2005
Type of Operation
Neos Kosmos. Junction of Phoivou 2 and Chelidonon (O.T. 54054, Sp. Kremmyda property). T. Kokkoliou (Γ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports on excavation ahead of construction close to the excavated plot of V. Asimomyti at Paraskevopoulou 8, where a total of 47 graves were discovered, mainly from the Late Roman period (Paraskevopoulou Street being the boundary of the Late Roman cemetery of the Kynosarges area).
The corner of a building of the Late Roman city was uncovered at the northwest edge of the plot preserving two sections of rooms 4.08m wide. The building extends into the adjacent plot to the south. Pottery from within the rooms dates to the Hellenistic - Roman transition.
Partially disturbed rectangular cuttings (almost parallel and oriented north-south) to the east of the building are probably funerary. Fourth- to second-century BC lachrymateria were found within them.
