  • The Anavlochos range is located in Crete, in the Mirambello region, where central Crete and eastern Crete meet. It consists of a long ridge of dolomitic limestone oriented north-west/south-east, which overlooks the village of Vrachasi, built on the southern slope. The site's natural defensive character and its strategic position have often been remarked on; to the north it dominates the city of Milatos and its coastal plain, and to the south it controls the gorge of Selinari, which goes down to the port of Sissi, where an important LM IIIA-B inhabited area has been under excavation since 2007 under the auspices of the Belgian School at Athens (director: J. Driessen). It is close to the urban centre of the city of Dreros, built to the east, where the Greek archaeological service and the FSA (directors: V. Zographaki and A. Farnoux) have been carrying out new research since 2008.

    RHAMNOUS-6093
    Rhamnous, Chrysina plot. E. Mpanou (B' ????) reports on the discovery of a 4th c. B.C. rock-cut grave (Fig. 1), which lies adjacent to the archaeological site of Rhamnous. The grave, which had been covered with schist plaques, contained a skeleton, 5 unguentaria, a black-glazed kantharos, phialai, plates, a bronze mirror, and numerous bronze and iron nails. The latter attest to the existence of a wooden larnax.
