The Elliptical House of Hamezi

Sitia
  • The Elliptical House of Hamezi

‚ÄčIn the position of "Souvloto Mouri", in 1903, the excavations under the direction of
St. Xanthoudidis brought into light a building of the Minoan period. Its unique
elliptic form -uncommon for the period- and its function, puzzled the archaelogists
for many years. In I971, a new research conducted by the Professor Mr. Dabaras
revealed new evidence that this building was in fact a residence, of unique style in
the Minoan period, dating back to 2200-2000 B.C. while the remains of more ancient
residences have been found. During the excavations cupreous objects were found in
the exterior of the residence, while in the rooms vessels and some figurines have
been found, which are saved in the Museums of Heraklion and Aghios Nikolaos.
