Ennea Odoi. D. Malamidou (ΚΗ' ΕΠΚΑ) reports on rescue excavation of Ar tombs over a wide area between hill 133 and Alepotrypa, which lead her to support the location of Ennea Odoi on hill 133. Ar tombs from the area of the Kasta hill are presented, most previously reported (see AR 51 [2004−2005], 81). At Mesolakkia, a 3rd cist grave is added to the 2 reported in AR 53 ([2006−2007], 70). This female burial contained 2 small bronze figure-of-8 fibulae at shoulder level, plus a larger one at the left shoulder, silver spirals in the hair, an iron pin, bronze ring, a biconical bronze bead at the throat, 2 bronze bracelets (one on each arm), and a plainware oinochoe and Phari type skyphos. Radiocarbon dating of the wooden bridge of Amphipolis (Y. Maniatis, Y. Facorellis, D. Malamidou and Ch. Koukouli-Chrysanthaki, Archaeometry forthcoming) indicates a construction phase in the L6th Ct BC (550−480 BC), implying the presence of a road leading into the area of hill 133.
