Title:   Agora Excavations 1997 Season Preliminary Report
Author:   John McK. Camp II
Abstract:   Excavations were carried out in two separate areas: under the Middle Stoa in the Agora square, and just north of the northwest entrance of the Agora. The excavations produced material covering a wide chronological span, from the earliest Iron Age to the beginning of the Hellenistic period. The early material was particularly abundant, for example an iron age burial, and a disturbed grave and two wells from the eighth century B.C. Over hundred pieces of ostraka were recovered from the late Archaic period. In the Classical commercial building, more evidence of the manufacture and sale of miniature works of art were found, as was another pyre.
The demolition of a recently required property was begun.
