Kastro Limenarion (Kambos). S. Papadopoulos (ΙΗ΄ ΕΠΚΑ/Thrace) reports the discovery of rural dwellings and wine making facilities used from the Hel to LByz in this mountainous region (ca. 500masl). The most significant finds were monumental wine presses (one example exceeded 1m h.), of which 7−8 have been discovered, some located in a central point in the vineyard and others within the stone-built periboloi of residences. They may have been shared facilities. Complexes included the central area of the treading-floor, the collection vessel placed beneath, and the hollow to drain off the must; the entire interior is lined with a waterproof mortar.
