Vasiliki Eleni Dimitriou Annuario della Scuola archeologica di Atene e delle missioni italiane in Oriente XCII, Serie III.14 (2014) [2016]: 15-31


Apart from a brief publication (1930-1931), the findings of the excavation by D. Levi in 1922 of a Neolithic hut on the south slope of the Acropolis north of the Stoa of Eumenes and the archeological material he collected in 1923 from two small caves north of the temple of Asclepio have not been extensively studied or published. This paper uses a modern scientific approach to reinterpret the material and integrate these data for the first time into the wider context of the Neolithic and Early Helladic (EH) period. The materials include stone tools, obsidian (blades and cores) and pottery. Ceramics, besides pattern burnished ware, include vessels such as cheese pots, sauceboats (dark-on-light, urfirnis, yellow mottled), rolled rim bowls placing the site of the Acropolis in the broader cultural context of the Final Neolithic, EH I and EH II period. The presence of ceramics from the Attica-Kefala culture and EH II phase testify to the common characteristics of the material culture with other sites in Attica and contacts with the Cyclades either directly or indirectly through exchange centers such as Agios Kosmas.
