  • The French School at Athens has seven permanent archaeological missions: six in Greece itself, Dikili-Tash, Philippi, Thasos, Delphi, Argos, Delos, and Malia (in Crete), and one on the south-west coast of the island of Cyprus, at Amathus. These sites form a not insignificant part of the scientific heritage of the School (see the history of the School). 

    The School also conducts its archaeological activities within the framework of temporary archaeological missions, whether in Greece (Itanos, Lâto and Dreros in Crete), in Cyprus (Shillourokambos and Potamia), or in Albania (Sovjan, Apollonia, Byllis). In addition, the School provides support for the excavation of the Kouphovouno site in Greece and to the mission studying Durrës in Albania. 

    Several of the missions benefit or have benefitted from FSA/MAEE co-funding, as is the case for Dikili Tash, Kouphovouno and Itanos in Greece, for Amathus, Shillourokambos, and Potamia in Cyprus, and for Sovjan, Apollonia, and Byllis in Albania.

    Athens, Botanikos, Falaisias 4 (property of A. Adrianopoulou). Giannis Maurokefalidis (?' ????) reports on the discovery of a Late Roman - Early Christian cemetery, which was built on top of a Classical one (Figs. 1, 2). 13 cist graves with an E-W orientation were excavated. These were built with strong walls which incorporated many spolia from the earlier, Classical cemetery (Fig. 3). The burial offerings include bronze coins (one of which is of Justinianic date), a bronze pin, a lamp and 6th c. A.D. pottery (including an undecorated lekythos). In addition, numerous pottery sherds dating from the Classical period to the 6th c. A.D. were found in the walls of the graves. One of the graves was enclosed by a rubble wall (Fig. 4), which also enclosed a mudbrick structure that appears to have
