Almyros. V. Apostolakou (ΚΔ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the excavation of several vaulted tombs and cist graves. The largest vaulted tomb (tomb 30) was 3.75m by 2.3m and 2.3m high. Most graves appear to have been looted, but one looted vaulted tomb nevertheless contained 53 bronze, 30 iron, 7 silver, and 6 gold objects, including the head of a gold pin, two gold earrings and a gold band. Two of the vaulted tombs (24 and 25) appear to be a group delineated by a peribolos. A cist grave (26) first uncovered in an earlier season proved to be a monolithic poros sarcophagus covered by reused architectural members. It contained the bones of at least three individuals together with a vase, two coins and two bronze, two iron, and two stone items.
