Pano Pigadi, Sevasto (land of the brothers D. and F. Christou). G. Riginos (Η’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of an Early Hellenistic farmhouse (Fig. 1). Four rooms of the structure were revealed (total preserved area 16.6 x 9m), with walls of medium-sized unworked limestone pieces bound in mud. Room 4 (7 x 6.5/7m) formed the central space of the building with the main entrance in its south side (the threshold is preserved plus a paved alley outside). While the area was not completely explored, it is clear that the destruction deposit did not extend over the entire area. To the west was the second largest room (1, 5 x 8m), the northwest side of which has been disturbed by a mechanical digger; the remainder of the space was covered with a destruction layer. In the northwest corner was a round stone hearth. Room 3, northwest of room 1, was the most severely damaged by the digger. Room 2, the smallest (2.8 x 2.6m), communicated with room 1; an area of stone paving would found on the western side, with a bench in the northwest corner.
Finds include domestic pottery (including black-glaze), small bronze and iron items (sheet, mails, handles), three almost intact terracotta lamps, conical terracotta loomweights, iron clamps for the repair of pithoi, and eight bronze coins of the Epirote League.
