  • 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.

    Kifissia, Deligianni 39 (O.T. 174A, property of Sarantopoulou). Maria Stefanopoulou (B' ????) reports on the discovery of houses and burials (Fig. 1). The area attests to a long use from the EH to the Byzantine periods. A floor and EH pottery sherds are the only remains of the earlier phase. Late Geometric pottery sherds may indicate that the area was inhabited during this period too. Part of a Late Archaic building was excavated, consisting of rubble walls. Seven ditches, 2 cairns and 2 pits containing EH and Archaic pottery sherds are contemporary to this building. A stone paved area, 2 walls and 5 cairns are dated to the early Classical period. From the second half of the 5th c. B.C. the area was converted to a cemetery. A peribolos wall of rectangular stone blocks was excavated. Th
