    ATHENS - Monastiriou-6115
    Athens, Monastiriou 6-8 (property of Manasaki). Konstantina Lymperopoulou (?' ????) reports on the discovery of a stretch of the ancient road leading from the asty to the Academy of Plato and 7 burials (Fig. 1). The road had two 5th-century B.C. phases (one prior to the middle of the century and one after), and appears to have remained in use until the 2nd c. B.C. A drain runs parallel to the road. The latter was damaged by a modern well. Finally 1 inurned cremation, 4 tile graves and 2 cist graves were found. Apart from one burial, dated to the 1st c. A.D., all others contained no burial offerings and cannot be dated.
