NOTICE
Perdikaria, Xylokeriza (land of S. Phydabani). V. Tassinos (ΛΖ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the
discovery of an early Classical cemetery with 17 limestone sarcophagi set into pits opened in
the soft limestone bedrock (with a stone packing around them). Most were lined with white
stucco. Seven (7, 8, 12, 14, 15, 16 and 17) were found intact; in three cases (4, 9 and 13) the
cover slabs had been partially destroyed by a mechanical digger but the contents remained
intact; one was recently looted (1); and the remaining six (2, 3, 5, 6, 10 and 11) had been
destroyed by a mechanical digger and probably then looted, since occasional grave offerings
remained. The most common offerings were Corinthian and Attic-Boiotian vases of the first half
of the fifth century (skyphoi, lekanides, oinochoae, lekythoi, kylikes and kotyles). Skeletal
remains were at best very poorly preserved: six children are securely identified, while many of
the rest could be sub-adults. The tombs were closely packed together, but with no consistent
orientation.
