SCY126: Politiko Phorades 4

SIA: SIA 7 (Politiko Kokkinorotsos)
Survey unit: 3149

Politiko Phorades 4 is a relatively small lithics scatter, consisting of some 30 pieces. Many of them are of fine material, and there is very distinct evidence of lithic reduction. The main cluster consists of c. 12 flakes and one large core, most of them red jasper. In geomorphological terms the surface is stable and has a fully formed pavement, and probably dates to the Late Pleistocene or Early Holocene. An extension of what is probably the same scatter was noted on the next ridge to the north, in unit 3150.
