1 - 2 weeks availability
This is the final publication of a small open-air sanctuary of Zeus, on Mt Hymettus above Athens, excavated between the Wars by Carl Blegen and Rodney Young. The finds reflect two periods of activity: 950-575 B.C. (many domestic cups and jugs, burnt animal bones), and the decades on either side of A.D. 400 ( some 120 late Roman lamps). The most significant find, however, was of 170 graffiti indicating a surprisingly high level of literacy in Attica of the seventh century B.C.
