ATHENS - KALLISPERI - 2010
Type of Operation
Athens, Kallisperi 21. Niki Sakka (Γ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports on the discovery of a 4th – 5th c. A.D. apsidal building (Figs. 1, 2). The building has a prodomos and a floor decorated in the opus sectile technique. It is highly likely that this building belongs to the large, public, 4th c. A.D. bath that was found in the area (Agora XXIV, 42-44). The building was extended in the 10th-12th c. A.D. A statue of a seated woman (1st c. A.D.) had been used in the construction of the building’s east wall.
A tile-built pithos was excavated east of the building. Finds from the area include a fragment for a 5th c. A.D. inscription which reads:
[ον] v [- - -]
καὶ Εἰρ[- -]
The excavation was conducted by the author of this report, T. Michalakopoulou and Eug. Tsalkou.
