Title:   Investigations in the Area of the Tholos 1937
Author:   Homer A. Thompson
Abstract:   An overview of the work carried out in the area of the Tholos in 1937. The 6th century B.C. accumulation was stripped away revealing a complex of foundation walls, of limestone polygonal construction, of private houses. The Tholos seems to have been erected over the ruins of those houses. Black-figured pottery found in the debris overlying the floors of the earlier houses provide a terminus post quem for the earliest Tholos. The building suffered greatly by Sylla's invasion in 86 B.C and the subsequent reconstruction altered the area and Tholos.
