Argos Orestikon (Diocletianoupolis). Ch. Tsoungaris and G. Tsokas (ΚΘ' ΕΠΚΑ and Aristotelian University, Thessaloniki) report on archaeological and geophysical investigation in the area of Argos Orestikon, aiming to locate the structure at which the inscribed base of an honorific statue of Claudius was erected. The lines of major constructions close to the Byz centre, but on a different alignment from Byz buildings, are noted: these likely belong to the Rom city. Trial trenches in one location 300m S of the previous excavation area revealed part of a Rom structure built of fieldstones and more than 300m l. E−W. Its size suggests a significant public building.
