THE TUMULUS OF PARAPOTAMOS

In the area of “Tsifliki”, north of Prapotamos village in the municipality of Igoumenitsa, there is a low tumulus with an ancient cemetery. The mound, reaching a height of 5m., was surrounded by a circular precinct, scantly preserved mainly along the southern side of its circumference. Across the tumulus surface a total of 88 graves have been revealed, mostly cist graves along with seven pit graves and a burial in a vessel. Few of the burials contained grave offerings, mostly jewelry and coins. Based on these few findings, the use of the cemetery seems to have expanded over an extremely long period of time from the Hellenistic to the post-Byzantine era.
