Agora Report: 2004 Excavations
Title:   Preliminary Report on the 2004 Excavation Season
Author:   John Camp
Abstract:   All the work during the season 2004 was concentrated at the northwest corner of the Agora, north of the Panathenaic Way.
In Section ΒΗ the Byzantine remains were continually exposed, representing several buildings and phases.
In BZ North the last vestiges of Byzantine fills and Byzantine walls were removed and Hellenistic, early Roman and late Roman fills were explored. A gap in the archaeological record between the late Hellenistic/early Roman to late Roman periods was discovered. It appears that the area was abandoned after the attack by the Slavs and was left in ruins for two to three hundred years.
In Section BZ South work continued in the North-South Road and in the building along its west side. Along the west side of the street a terra-cotta pipeline for fresh water was traced for much of the length of the excavated street. In the building west of the street further cleaning took place, revealing more of an early Roman structure.
In Section ΒΗ excavation of the Byzantine remains behind the Painted Stoa continued. Various walls representing several buildings and phases were exposed. Τhe character of the remains suggest that this area was more industrial than domestic.
