Title:   Preliminary Report on the 1999 Excavation Season
Author:   John McK. Camp II
Abstract:   Most of the work this season was concentrated in the northern half of Section ΒΖ where the Byzantine levels were further explored. Street walls along both sides of the north-south road were revealed and part of three houses were uncovered. Several built pithoi were found within the houses, representing impressive storage capacity. A small hoard of copper coins dates the houses to the 11th century A.D. when the area after two centuries of abandonment became densely populated.
In Section ΒΕ excavation continued in the Classical commercial building where another pyre was discovered. A well was uncovered and was partly dug. It was filled with debris dating to the 2nd and 3rd quarter of the 5th c. B.C. More work was also done on two Mycenaean tombs.
