Ancient Sikyon, Thea or Exochiko (property of Ch. Karabetsou). V. Papathanasiou reports on the discovery of a Hellenistic-Roman quarry, with blocks of varying shapes and sizes used as building materials (Fig. 1). Resting on marl, the reddish limestone is known locally as amygdalitis. Quarrying activity was investigated at various depths from 0.4-2.45 m., with finds including a few pottery sherds, copper fragments, a weathered coin and carbonised cereal grains. Based on the pottery, the quarry was dated to the 4th c. BC.
