    Organisation of a School for the teaching of French known as the 'École Giffard', after the man who created a foundation for the development of French culture. Until 1945, the teaching of French in Greece was under the control of the FSA, which was also a centre for examinations.


    Alteration of the FSA's admissions procedure: the competition is opened to those who have passed the agrégation and successfully submitted a thesis (for the Diplôme d'études supérieures) on a topic in Greek archaeology or epigraphy (it replaces the year-long course).

    Argos, 33 D. KALLERGI STREET (property A. Tsafara). Christos Piteros (?'????) reports on the discovery of a rectangular structure with evidence for two construction phases (Fig. 1). The earlier phase consisted of sections of wall built using worked limestone, while the latter included two adjoining Poros block walls located along the eastern and southern edge of the structure. The finds included pottery, parts of a clay perirrhanterion and figurines of the 5th to 4th centuries BC (Fig. 2).
