Zominthos 2019: Week 6

Room 65

In the area to the north of Room 56A the excavation was concluded with the complete removal of the Late Minoan I layer full of pottery (Fig. 1). A total number of 124 pottery vessels, mostly conical cups, came to light in this layer, mainly in the area along the south wall. The great majority of these vases (105 in total) were found laying on the rests of a low rectangular stone platform in the SE part of the area (Fig. 1-2). Most of them were conical cups of various types; two miniature jugs (“milk jugs”), three “fruit stands”, two oval-mouth amphorae and two conical rhyta were found as well (Fig. 3).
