    KIFISSIA, Koukounarias and S. Kontou -6057
    Kifissia, Koukounarias and S. Kontou (O.T. G927, property of P. Oikonomou, I. Vassarioti). Maria Stefanopoulou (B' ????) and Dimitrios Palaiologos (B' ????) report on the discovery of a Neolithic settlement (Fig. 1). An elongated ditch containing thirteen smaller ditches attest to the first phase of use of the area. At a later date, a hut was placed within the ditch. The hut preserves a stone floor and one posthole. At an even later date the hut acquired a circular shape and was reduced to occupying only the centre of the aforementioned ditch. Seven postholes contemporary to this construction phase were found. A second hut was constructed east of this one. This later hut is also circular in shape, had a stone floor and preserves two postholes. Two stone axes and two flint blades were found
