Unkonwn Mycenaean cemetery discovered


An unknown Mycenaean cemetery ten kilometres North-West of Leonidion, near the village Vaskina, in “Socha” has been discovered after heavy rainfall in the area. The cemetery has been noticed by the 39 th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities. Following the preliminary rescue excavation, with the support of the City of South Kynourias, revealed five cist graves. These graves had received more than one dead. Among the offerings are distinguished symposium’s clay pots, stone spindle whorls, and a bronze pin.

The findings are placed chronologically in the 14 th century BC.
