In 2012-13, a team directed by A. Greco and financed by ISTAP and the University of Rome-Sapienza, completed the survey of Christòs Effendi, the highest acropolis of Phaistos. Following the data stemming from the survey, two stratigraphic trial pits were also dug. In trial pit 7, two buildings and, outside the oldest one, part of a lintel and an inscribed ashlar were found. The inscription could date between the third and the first century BC. In Trail Pit 8, a floor of limestone fragments associated with a structure bound by stones was found. The structure has been interpreted as the building site for the construction of the late classical fortification wall which run over the top of the hill. Under this building yard, a structure associated with a threshold, a pivot and a big Pithos have been unearthed. The pithos, together with the other pottery found, date the whole complex between VIII and VII century B.C.
