ATHENS - Thiseio - 2005
Type of Operation
16 Poulopoulou Street, Thiseio (Selimekou Brothers property). T. Kokkoliou (Γ ΕΠΚΑ) reports that excavation on this 543m2 plot revealed Hellenistic to Late Roman structures, a large number of water channels, a well and three graves (probably Prehistoric).
A Hellenistic house was revealed almost in direct contact with the fortification walls, traces of which had previously been found. In the south part of the plot, walls of two rooms were found (in one room was a bath). The house probably had an upper floor supported by wooden columns, the circular bases for which survive to the north.
To the south-southeast were extensive Classical fills and a bovine skull. The southeast part of the plot contained later, Late Roman and Byzantine, phases of the building. Finds include bone pins, parts of marble pestles, lead weights, loom weights, stamped amphora handles (Knidian mostly), 24 bronze coins, a few Late Roman lamps, and a lamp with the inscription ΧΙΟ/ΝΗ of the first half of the fifth century AD.
Three cuttings were identified as possible Prehistoric graves.
