Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 55 F4 Lefkandi

The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Lefkandi, Xeropolis/Tomba

 

The Toumba site at Lefkandi, discovered in 1980, revealed an important structure interpreted as an Iron Age heroön; this was perhaps the first hekatompedos

(100-foot building) in the Greek world. The site comprised the ritually dismantled structure, the cremation burial of an elite male, inhumation burial of an elite female, and four ritually sacrificed horses. Following the elite burials a number of other burials approached, but did not encroach upon, the temenos.
