    Reuse and Cult at the Mycenaean tombs of Kephalonia in the Ancient Historical Periods
    (Society of Kefalonian Historical Research, 2018-05-25)
    The reuse of Mycenaean tombs for cult purposes in the historical periods, usually referred to as tomb cult, is documented in many parts of Greece and to date a long bibliography exists on the subject. This could take the form of new burials in the tombs, but more commonly it is manifested by the deposition in the interior of the tombs or their immediate vicinity of offerings of pottery vessels, jewellery, figurines, loom-weights, miniature vessels or other small objects. Less common is the occurrence of burnt layers of animal bones (possible evidence of sacrifices or meals), or the re-arrangement and removal of human bones. Only exceptionally are altars or shrines erected in association with the tombs.

    (Fund of Archaeological Proceeds, 2017-11-26) ; ;
    The site of Palia Stane-Prospholeika (P. Tsilimidos property) is located at a short distance south of the modern town of Argostoli, and occupies a commanding position on the lower slopes of the hilly zone overlooking the alluvial plain and the bay of Koutavos to the ENE. Four short excavation campaigns have taken place (2010, 2013, 2014) under the direction of Andreas Sotiriou of the 35th EΠKA. The excavation of the plot has not been completed. Preliminary results were presented at the 2014 Conference on the Archaeological Work in NW Greece and the Ionian Islands (Σωτηρίου et al. 2018).
