Abstract:

The present report covers the 2015 campaign of excavations carried out in the central area of the plateaux to the west of the agora in the residential part of the town of Akrai/Acrae, south-eastern Sicily, which was continuation of the previous 2011–14 campaigns. The excavations have yielded until now a rich material dating to two main occupational phases in the Late Hellenistic – Early Roman and the Late Roman–Byzantine periods
