Excavation at Potidaia
The most significant results of the excavation in the area of Nea Potidaia are the following: a) A Macedonian tomb consisting of one chamber, a few Hellenistic cist-graves,and some architectural remains were discovered from 1984 to 1986. Furthermore, the line of the southern and the northern walls of the ancient city were also located during trial trenches. b) Parts of a Hellenistic and another, probably Roman public building containing marble sculpture came to light in 1989. An ancient well, a Roman double burial as wellas the foundation of a house comprising six rooms organized around a central courtyard and dated to the early 3rd century B.C. were also discovered in the same period. The most significant finds of this house were two hoards of coins, consisting of one gold and 35 silver coins of Alexander the Great. The above finds are related to the Hellenistic city of Kassandreia, founded by Kassander in 316/5 B.C. However, there is no archaeological evidence concerning theexistence of the Archaic and Classical Potidaia, which survived until 356 B.C., and was destroyed by Philip II.
