The House with the Pithoi

PDF


  Dwelling houses with several pithoi (large storage jars) in successive settlement phases from the Hellenistic period (3rd – 1st BC) have been identified. Α series of large stone blocks used for a floor attest to the existence of an earlier monumental structur bellow these phases.

   The narrow walls, built of rubble masonry low down and mud bricks higher up, supported a wooden superstructure. A courtyard area contained a drainage conduit covered with tiles, while some of the rooms contained pithoi, a rectangular hearth and two circular structures framed by stone slabs.
