Comment The pottery was heavily fragmented. The jars are described as having a flaring rim, being bi-conical or nodular. Parallels can be found in Nerokourou and Phaistos. A stratigraphical difference in the pottery can be observed: The fragments in the lower layers have finer inclusions than those in the layers above. The clay-composition has its best parallels in Pandotinou Koriphi, a non-excavated site southern of Anatoli, and similarities can be seen in the Final Neolithic pottery of Azoria. Chronologically the pottery seems to be contemporary with Phaistos and Gortyn, but earlier than Nerokourou.
