The area of the main courtyard (1) of the “Hellenistic” House was excavated below its ancient surface, establishing the stratigraphy of this architecture with late Classical and incipient Hellenistic strata below the courtyard and early 2nd century AD fill above the basin and surrounding floors; thus, the construction of the main courtyard of the “Hellenistic” House turned out to be later than believed to date. The exploration of the cistern under the southeastern part of the courtyard was continued and another water supply, a well, was found in the northeastern corner of the corridor. The building sequence of the porticoes of the courtyard was also studied in a test trench in the southwestern corner of the unit. Another test in street B at the southwestern corner of the House of Aion uncovered a sequence of floors and the southern elevation of a building under a late Roman street.
