Type of Operation
Chalasmata, Daphnoula. X. Arapogianni (Ζ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of three tile graves on a small hill beside the riverside road leading to the modern village.
Tomb 1 (1.9 x 0.45m) on the western slope of the hill was oriented north-south and formed of two tiles, closed with a large field stone on the north side. It contained an extended inhumation laid on a thin layer of clay soil, with the upper body turned onto the left side and the hands together on the left of the pelvis. One undiagnostic sherd and two pieces of an undiagnostic iron tool were the only finds.
The small, triangular tomb 2 at the southern edge of tomb 1, formed of two stones and a piece of tile, contained human bones with a black glaze lamp set on top of them.
Tomb 3, ca. 2m north of tomb 1 and of similar construction but oriented east-west, was half destroyed. It contained a single inhumation of which the upper part only survives, and no grave goods.
On the hill top were traces of plastered walls in two locations. These included later period remains, as well as limestone blocks.
