with a dromos, constructed at the end of the 6th century B.C., and continuously
used until the Hellenistic period. The tumulus over the tomb was enclosed by a
peribolos built in polygonal wall masonry. A black-figure kalyx krater found inside
the tomb is attributed to the workshop of the vase-painter Exekias. It bears a
representation of the battle between the Greeks and the Trojans over the body
of Patroclos. A Mycenaean chamber tomb was found under the Archaic tholos.
The tomb was excavated by N. Verdelis in the years 1951-1956.
