Plot of S. and M. Mama

The property lies on the lower slope of Hill I, and is adjacent to the Stamatakis property. It was excavated in 2007. A small part of a Neopalatial wall was discovered, belonging to the settlement of that period. Another interesting find was a built rectangular construction with floor lined with plaster, probably of the Byzantine period. It might have served as a container for oil or wine, and is comparable to the cistern or the neighboring Stamatakis property. The pottery from the excavation was Minoan, Roman and Byzantine.

As in the Stamatakis plot, here too these fragmentary finds are important since they indicate that human activity on the lower slopes of the hill was not limited to the LM III period (Richardson property), and, furthermore, it extended down to the ancient coastline.
