At the north entrance to the village of Ligortynos, a major, looted, chamber-like tomb of the Geometric Period was found.

The chamber was circular; only the threshold and two monolithic pilasters (1m high), as well as the lintel above them remain of the entrance. Numerous ash containers have been found with their lids, as well as vases, among which there was a crater (drinking cup) from the Geometric era bearing a ‘daedalic’ figure. Particularly interesting is a series of 32 tiny clay shields, most of which bear white decorations on a black background.
