    Patras, M. NEOFYTOU AND SOTIRIADOU STREET. Anastasia Koumousi (6th ???) reports on excavations with architectural remains attributed to three different periods. The first included a rectangular room in which a cache of bronze torneselli (coins) of the 14th century AD was found, attributed to the first Venetian period. The second was attributed to the Byzantine and included walls of rubble, tiles and bricks. The third was Early Christian and consisted of two rooms with walls built of terracotta bricks and mortar, along with a partially preserved geometric mosaic floor (Fig. 1) attributed to the 4-6th centuries AD.
