The House with the Loomweigths

PDF

 

In this area the visitor may see the remains of at least two houses of the Hellenistic period (3rd -2nd c. BC), separated by a narrow lane about 2 m. wide with a drainage conduit.
 
  The name “ House with the  Loomweights” was given on account of the large pile of loomweights that was found at the rear, underground end of one of its rooms. The loom weights, made of fired clay, had various shapes: round-shaped, conical, pyramidal,  trapezoid etc. The big number of loomweights suggests that the building had a dual function, both as a habitation area and as a weaving workshop.
