Evidence and some speculations on Bronze Age presence at wider area of Kymissala, Rhodes

Manolis I. Stefanakis Annuario della Scuola Archeologica di Atene e delle Missioni Italiane in Oriente 97 (2019): 58-73

The paper is bringing together evidence on the Mycenaean presence in the wider area of Kymissala based on surveys and sporadic finds, namely pottery and weapons. The finds are discussed according to their alleged find-spots in an attempt to show that the area was inhabited since prehistoric – possibly late Neolithic/early Bronze Age – times with a more intensive use in the late Bronze Age, inferring to a Mycenaean presence and maybe a settlement in the area – although such a nucleus has not been identified so far – putting thus Kymissala in the context of the well-established south-Rhodes Mycenaean network.
