RESEARCH ON THE BASILICA AND PIERS AT MAREA IN EGYPT
Languages of publication
During the two-month excavation season, the space of the south pastophorium of the basilica was examined. Excavations in the north part of utility rooms were related to the previous season, and focused mainly on searching for the proper entrance to the “cellar” located below those rooms (# 30, # 33, # 34, # 35), where the deposit of jugs discovered in 2009 (124 items), coins, glass and terracotta were found. Because of annually increasing considerable deterioration of the piers, caused mainly by weather conditions and environment pollution, during the discussed season we made the effort of inventorying the above mentioned structures. In Marea, which used to be a lake port, there are four piers which may have been used for loading and unloading cargo ships and river boats of shallow draught, as well as taking and serving the incoming passengers.
