Details / Information  Overview:

The houses of Tylissos were built during the LM I period (16th-15th century B.C.). Additions were made on House A in the LM II (15th-14th century B.C.) and on House C during the LM III period (14th century B.C.). The site was destroyed by fire in the 14th century B.C. and re-inhabited in historic times as is attested by ruins of later houses over the Minoan ones.

Tylissos was excavated by Iosif Chatzidakis in 1902-1913. In 1954, in the course of restorations, parts of a paved court were revealed to the west and a small gallery with five columns to the north of the Square of the Altar.
