Description:   Mycenaean Grave under Stoa Terrace, at original north end of Stoa; and PG vases on patches of stones over this burial, and to NE (formerly P 8:7). Cf. Q 8:13. No remains. In some records as Grave XLV.
Two patches of fieldstone paving on bedrock located about 3m west of Q 8:7. One of these, to the northeast, measured about a meter across and filled out a natural depression in bedrock; on it lay a kantharos. The other, about a meter to the west and larger, was continuous with the stony filling of a "cist" grave, though to be Mycenaean, directly below. Encountered among the stones of the packing was a fragmentary millstone or quern of Aiginetan andesite, and on the packing were the fragments of a jug and a small oinochoe. Loose filling above these patches of stone contained Mycenaean through Archaic sherds.
