Continuation of the excavation during the past two seasons has shown that this is a ceremonial dining-hall (a building for communal feasting during the festival). The earlier, apsidal building phase of the dining-hall goes back to the early archaic period (7th century B.C.). In the classical phase (4th century B.C.) it could accommodate at least eighteen distinguished people who dined reclining on couches, while the rest of the worshippers dined in the open-air. The entire area produced a plentiful amount of pottery, both cooking and table-ware.
