Summary Roman slag heap and pottery, field walls, pre-modern church
Period ROM MM
Environment Two types of geology: Pillow lavas on the hill slope and an alluvial plain at the bottom of the hillslope running from S to N. River terrace with a river at W site running at the bottom of the hill creating a fairly deep gully with lots of vegetation around it. The land is still used for olive groves but some of it is fallow. There is a good amount of irrigation (water channels). Most importantly it is clear that the river is quite wet still.
Pottery Abundant
Tile Abundant
Chipped Stone Some
Ground Stone None
Architecture Some
Slag Abundant
Material Culture Pottery fields starting from 200m N of the slag heap to 400m S of it, on the alluvial plain. In addition, in this area (S) there is not really much tile. Pottery numbers seem to be going down towards the S end of the alluvial plain. In the centre on the other hand, tile is more abundant. Pottery collected, mainly Late Roman and Modern.
Description SIA TP006: Slag heap. Large square fields, dense material (especially between the outcrop of pillow lavas and slag heap). On the top of the pillow lava outcrop ('Rock of Ayios Kyriakos'; TP017), there is a small buried structure; wall with pithos remains on top of it; it seems that somebody has dug a hole at its S side. Intensive block survey across SIA in small SUs, and across river; recorded section of slag heap; mapped of terrace walls and field walls; gridded TP104; lots of photographs.
