Ancient Sikyon, Syriona (property of Anca Anna Florina). V. Papathanasiou (ΛΖ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports on the discovery of walls belonging to three partly preserved buildings, as well as clay floors (Fig. 1). The walls were made of rubble, carefully shaped blocks and mortar and date from the Classical to Byzantine periods. Also located was a rectangular trench sunk into the bedrock, an Early Hellenistic cist child burial and two wells (Fig. 2). In the eastern side of the trench were found in situ three large blocks which probably derived from a monumental building or defensive walls. Additional finds included unpainted and black-glazed pottery sherds, eight bronze coins, a bronze pin, two iron nails, a bronze earing, clay anthropomorphic and zoomorphic figurines and loom weights.
