Type of Operation
Nikaia, 116 Eptalofou Street (property of A. Demitsoglou and D. Tsakiroglou). Maria Petritaki (ΚΣΤ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of nine burials of the late fourth to early third century BC. A burial enclosure, possibly belonging to a family, contained four burials (one pyre, two tile graves and one cist): the two surviving sides of the enclosure were excavated. Finds from this area comprise a small funerary column with the inscription ΔΗΜΗΤΡΙΟC ΕΦΕCΙΟC, two fragments of a marble palmette from a funerary stele, parts of the right hand of a marble statue and of the right leg of a marble lion, parts of a limestone base and of a limestone alabaster.The remaining burials include three tile graves, a terracotta larnax, and a pithos burial. Two cisterns excavated in the plot appear to have been in use prior to the establishment of the burial ground.
