Type of Operation
Drepano, property of E. Karela. Artemis Maniaki (ΣΤ’ΕΠΚΑ) reports on the excavation of two Geometric burial pithoi. They were placed horizontally on the ground and were aligned on a NE-SW axis, ranging in height from 1.77-2.30 m. One was embedded in river stones. They were sealed with clay discs, tile fragments and stones, while the bodies must have been placed with their heads towards the stomion. Grave goods included an iron pin, two bronze rings, a fragment of a bronze hair ring (sphekoteras), an early Geometric kantharos, two bronze phialae and other bronze parts of jewellery, along with a bronze wheel from a model of chariot.
