Venizelos station: on Venizelou street (formerly Sabri Pasha avenue, within the Byz city wall), part of an Ot cemetery was discovered. Seven cist tombs were found arranged in parallel, and 2 further randomly placed, indicating the continuing use of the cemetery (despite prohibition of intra-mural burial) until the end of the Ot period. Glazed and plain pottery from the area dates from the MByz−LOt and later. The cemetery was bounded to the E by a N−S wall containing a marble threshold block. This wall follows the building line on the W of the former Sabri Pasha avenue, abutting a section of that avenue which has 6 street levels preserved, and which in turn had a water channel running alongside it.
At the Venizelos station, the 9th EBA reports the discovery, at a d. of 4.1m below the mod. surface, of MByz−LByz (12th to first half 15th Ct AD) levels containing building remains (floors, walls and wells) and much pottery.
