Title:   Report on Excavations in the Athenian Agora 1990
Author:   T. Leslie Shear, Jr.
Abstract:   This is a report on the archaeological field work conducted in the Athenian Agora during the period from December 1989 to December 1990. The actual excavation period was preceded by preparatory operations including the demolition of a newly acquired building.
Excavations were carried out during nine summer weeks in two sections along the north side of Hadrian Street: ΒΖ (divided into north and south) and ΒΗ.
In section ΒΖ, Byzantine and and Roman fills were excavated. Three structures, already visible in Section ΒΕ, were revealed which led to a better understanding of these monuments. A well was dug and produced a large amount of pottery.
In Section ΒΗ mostly modern fills were excavated. The remains of a church was found as was some walls and cover slabs overlying the Eridanos River.
