Ancient Olympia, Platanos - 2006
Type of Operation
Ancient Olympia, Platanos. Christos Matzanas (Z’ EPKA) reports on the discovery of an almost completely preserved chamber tomb, in the northern part of which was a pit burial of probable Christian date. The chamber included five heavily disturbed simple pit graves covered by roughly made sandstone slabs (Figs. 1, 2). The burials were parallel and aligned on a N/NW-S/SE axis, along with a small number of grave goods. These included a stirrup jar dated to Late Helladic ΙΙΙΒ-C, a biconical spindle-whorl (Fig. 3), a complete bowl-dipper (pitharion) and a one-handled dipper dated to Late Helladic III (Figs. 4, 5).
