Summary: Settlement site with important Neolithic levels.
An artificial mound (or magoula) of over 11 m of occupation
deposits on the N bank of the Peneios ca. 4 km W of Larissa.
The site was first settled in the Aceramic Neolithic and continued
to be occupied throughout the Neolithic and Bronze Ages. The mound served as the
acropolis of Mycenaean Argissa and Classical Argyra. The Classical city spread
to the plateau below. Two concentric fortification walls (the inner wall dating
perhaps to the Archaic period) encircled the Hellenistic city.
