    Academic activities

    P. Foucart puts into action a large part of the programme begun by his predecessor: exploratory travels in Greece and Asia Minor are instigated, and excavations are carried out at 18 sites in Boeotia, the Peloponnese (Mantinea, Nemea and Tegea), and Asia Minor. An epigrapher of distinction, he introduces a tradition: the collection and publication of Greek inscriptions, which remain one of the FSA's strengths.

    VOULIAGMENI-6104
    Vouliagmeni, Zephyrou 21 (property of G. Kritsa). Mairi Giamalidi (???' ????) reports on the discovery of 2 retaining walls and another 2 walls delimiting a property (Figs. 1, 2). The retaining walls were constructed with rubble and roughly worked boulders. The latter were extracted from the area for their immediate use in the retaining walls. The walls delimiting the property were built with rubble (Fig. 3). It appears that the retaining walls served to contain the soil and attest to farming activities in the area. Small finds include undecorated and black-glazed pottery sherds from plates, skyphoi and oinochoai, all of which date in the Classical and Late Classical periods. The excavation was conducted by I. Louretzatou.
