Type of Operation
Acharnai, Aghias Triados and Boulgaroktonou Streets (O.T. 218, property of Ch. and P. Kalantzi). Maria Platonos (Β’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of five graves, four of which (1, 2, 4 and 5) lay in the western part of the plot, and were set in parallel, oriented east-west.
Grave 1: a monolithic, marble sarcophagus (0.92 x 2.3 x 0.64m) with a pedimental cover contained bones, sherds and a cylindrical limestone object. The neck of a marble alabastron was collected from its fill.
Grave 2: a cist built of conglomerate slabs with plastered walls, north of grave 1. It contained a few bones and sherds, plus a fragment of a crooked marble staff.
Grave 3: an oval tile grave (1.24 x 0.38 x 0.51m, oriented east-west) lacking the eastern part. Flat tiles delimit all sides. The grave contained a few bones and four unguentaria; a pyramidal loom weight was found in the fill.
Grave 4: a cist built of conglomerate slabs, similar to grave 2 but slightly smaller. The grave contained a few bones, a few roof-tile fragments and sherds and two fragments of worked marble.
Grave 5: a monolithic limestone sarcophagus (0.78 x 2.1 x 0.77m) north of grave 4 contained a few sherds (many black-glazed), bones, fragments of an iron nail and a fourth-century BC squat lekythos. The broken cover had collapsed into the grave.
