    MOSCHATO - Hydras St.-6097
    Moschato, Hydras St. 2 (property of D. Georgiou). Maria Petritaki (???' ????) reports on the discovery of a Hellenistic cemetery and a road (Fig. 1). The cemetery, which lies between the Long Walls, had a rubble peribolos wall, which also served as the retaining wall of the adjacent road. 19 burials were excavated: 6 cist graves, 4 pyres, 1 stone theke containing a kalpis (Fig. 2), 6 tile graves, 1 inurned cremation and 1 pit grave. All but two graves had burial offerings. One of the cist graves contained three burials. One of the graves contained 131 unguentaria, while another 112 such vessels (Fig. 3). The pyre contained a bronze coin. In addition, three locations for the placement of burial offerings were identified.
