TOPOGRAPHY OF NEOLITHIC AND BRONZE AGE SITES Tholos, or ancient Halasarna, is located ca. 6 km south-southeast of Tsangaris on a low gentle hill ca. 200 m north from the present coastline (Map 3, no. 7; Pl. 10B). The hill is roughly triangular in shape, with steep slopes only on its northern side, and it has a flat top. The site has a good view of the sea and the valley to the north and east. In historic times it served as the acropolis of the ancient settlement of Halasarna. The hill, as well as the area south of it leading to the sea, was heavily occupied in historic times until the Early Christian period.

It is accessible via two narrow paths, one from the northwest and one from the east. From the rather flat top there is clear visibility to the sea, the hills to the west and north, and part of the Halasarna plain to the east. 5 ha on the southwestern and southern side of the hill near its edge, a location with views over the narrow fertile plain to the west and south and over the sea. The prehistoric finds from Koukos are more heavily weathered than those found at any other site, suggesting their long exposure to the elements.
