The focus of Site M2 is what appears to be a natural sinkhole (D. ca. 30 m.) in the limestone plateau between Gargaliani and Lefki, approximately 1.8 km. S of the outskirts of the modern town.[091.12][091.13] The hole is completely filled with impenetrable maquis, trees and brambles; while its total depth is unknown, it is at least 2.5 m. deep. Olive groves surround the sinkhole.
Artifacts are concentrated near the edge of the hole, particularly to the S and SW, although pottery of both prehistoric and historical date was also found to the north. Tile was also concentrated S of the hole. Much of it has a distinctive light brown pebbly fabric; two fragments are coated with streaky reddish brown paint.
This site produced a small amount of ceramic material in a generally poor state of preservation, most sherds being small and worn. A very large proportion of this material was tile. The range of the diagnostic pottery is Middle Helladic to Modern, with a heavy concentration in the Classical period. MH III-LH II material is mostly coarse ware in the local orange fabric with tan clay inclusions. The Geometric-Archaic periods yielded fine and plain wares, and the Classical pottery includes fine ware, household wares, and cooking wares.
Much of the tile is in a distinctive light brown pebbly fabric; two fragments are painted with streaky reddish brown paint.
