Location and Description

Site A5 is located on the floor of the Metaxada valley, some 1.2 km. SSW of the modern village.[091.32] The asphalt road from Stylianos to Metaxada borders the site on the W; at its N is a small stream, choked with reeds.

Artifacts were concentrated in two adjacent groves of mature olives, separated by a stone terrace wall ca. 1.5 m. high; finds were most plentiful near this wall.

Visibility in one of the two fields was much worse in 1995 than it had been in 1994; the other field had been plowed since the site was collected in 1994 but we found few artifacts in it.
