Agora Report: 2005 Excavations
Title:   Preliminary Report on the 2005 Excavation Season
Author:   John McK. Camp II
Abstract:   Excavations were carried out in three sections in the summer of 2005: BZ, BH and Γ.
In section BZ, mostly Roman levels were excavated, dating from the 1st to the 5th centuries A.D. Much more of the north-south street was excavated, revealing a series of hydraulic installations, and the large drain along its east side was further exposed. West of the street evidence of a Roman bath was found. Eeast of the street, areas in line with the northern continuation of the commercial building to the south, were excavated.
In section BH, the last of the Byzantine remains were cleared down to 10th century A.D. level.
In section Γ, the area of the Strategeion, a large mid-5th century B.C. building, was re-opened for excavation with the intention to clarify its plan and to gather more information about its function. A large hoard of Athenian silver coins was discovered within the building.
