PALLENE - 2008
Pallene, Aghios Nikolaos, Pallenidos Athenas St. (O.T. 172, property of Emm. Perantzaki) D.N. Christodoulou (Β’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports on the discoveries of a Geometric burial and a Byzantine farmstead. The pit grave contained a male skeleton, an amphora, a trefoil-lipped oinochoe, a plate, three skyphoi, two kantharoi, an iron knife and a bronze artefact. It dates in the 8th c. B.C.
The Byzantine building was constructed with rubble walls. Five pithoi were found in one of the rooms. One of these had a stone slab as a lid on its rim. Six tile-built pithoi were found outside of the building. They were lined with mortar internally. Byzantine and Late Byzantine sherds and two bronze coins were found.
