    Iklaina. M. Cosmopoulos (ASA) reports on excavation in four areas at the Traganes location (Fig. 1). In the area of the workshops three more rooms were uncovered, of which one (at a lower level) contained a staircase with few steps on one side with which it communicated with another space. In the same room a clay tub (asaminthos, in Homeric terminology) was found, with an industrial use according to the excavator (Fig. 2). In another room a circular hearth was found and, around it, 5 flat stones, upon which stood wooden pillars supporting the roof around the opening through which smoke escaped from the hearth (Fig. 3). In the northwest corner of the previously excavated terrace a level with remains of the destruction of a structure which had occupied this location was uncovered. F
