    MOSCHATO - Chrysostomou St.-6098
    Moschato, Chrysostomou St. 117 (property of K. Kotseli). Maria Petritaki (???' ????) reports on the discovery of a 3rd-4th c. A.D. building (Figs. 1, 2). It has an E-W orientation, measures 7.40x5m., has two rooms, and was built with rubble, rooftiles and mortar. A bench was found in one room and a hearth in the other. The interior is covered with a destruction layer containing numerous roof tiles. It is thus evident that the building was roofed. Other finds from the building include plain ware sherds, fragments from beehives, glass sherds, animal bones and coins.
