DE ZUIDOOSTPOORT VAN HELLENISTISCH HALOS
From the 1995 campaign onwards, the Halos project is to focus on the military structures of the Hellenistic city. A start was made an excavating the southeast gate. It became clear that the actual gate closely follows the plan as reconstructed earlier from the surface remains. A surprise however was the discovery of several annex buildings, repairs and extensive re-use of the gate complex. Based on the coinfinds (including a small silver coin hoard) this re-use phase can be dated in the decades following the destruction of Halos, c. 265/4 BC.
