A Geometric temple in the district of ancient Eliki

On a private building site in the district of ancient Eliki, in what is at present the Municipality of Diakopto, part of a large Geometric temple came to light. It contains two building phases of the Late Geometric years as well as traces of worship from an even earlier period, from which, however, no remnants of buildings have survived. Along with a number of metallic finds, iron and bronze,in the temple a considerable amount of Geometric ceramics were uncovered, representative of the three groups of pottery common to Aegialia ;the painted Achean, painted Thapsos type and embossed earthenware. Finally, at least five clay models of houses were discovered, which are considered particularly important.
