ARGILOS (NKS), Ancient city, SERRES



  Founded by the Andrian colonists, west of the estuary of the Styrmon River in the Archaic period (654 BC), it appears active until the Hellenistic times after which it declined due to the great radiance of neighbouring Amphipolis. The excavations of the recent years uncovered parts of a defensive enceinte, private houses, public buildings and roads of the Archaic and Hellenistic city remarkably well preserved. Two important tombs of Macedonian type have also been brought to light, as well as clusters of rectangular tombs of the Classical and Hellenistic period.
