Hellenistic pottery from the excavation of plateia Diikitiriou
During the 1994 and 1995 excavations in Plateia Diikitiriou, two trial trenches were sunk to some depth beneath the floor of the building of the main phase, whose construction goes back to the 1st c. BC. A large number of portable finds dating from the end of the 4th down to the 2nd c. AD, together with the building phases identified, attest to the existence of a large Hellenistic core which probably extended over the larger part of the excavated area. The two categories of pottery that have been investigated, sherds from relief vases and ‘West Slope’ pottery, are represented by a variety of shapes and decorative motifs that cover the entire 3rd and 2nd c. BC and point to relations between this early settlement core and production centres in Athens and Macedonia. The investigation is continuing.
