Prior to the excavation, a 1.5 m overburden of sterile alluvial soil was removed with the aid of mechanical equipment. Directly below this soil architectural features, dating to the Roman period (Stratum I) and the Early Bronze Age IA (Stratum II), were revealed.


Stratum I

This stratum was primarily represented by pits that penetrated into the ruins of the Stratum II building. The finds included potsherds, animal bones, tessarae, marble fragments, coins and a striated ‘Olynthus’ basalt millstone.


Stratum II

Part of a building was excavated (Fig. 1). A long wall, traversing the excavation square on a north–south axis, was constructed from both a single row of large stones and two rows of medium-sized stones, with a core of smaller filler stones. The wall was abutted by a semicircular stone-built platform and a living surface. The platform was apparently placed at a corner between the long wall and a probable wall, running in an east–west direction and due north of the excavated area.  The long wall and the platform were preserved to a maximum of 0.5 m high. Potsherds dating to the Early Bronze Age IA were associated with the living surface.
