|Abstract: ||Recent excavation in the Southern Area at Kommos (Figs. 1, 2; Pl. 17:a, b) has exposed most of a Late Minoan (LM) building, House X, with extensive small finds. The very large ashlar Building T, set near the sea and perhaps functioning partially as an emporium, can be described as palatial or even as a ?palace?, now that its plan is more completely known with the discovery of its south and east borders. Building P, set upon much of the east wing of T, can now be understood as a series of at least six broad and completely undivided galleries, open on the west to the seashore. The suggestion made in the past that the galleries housed ships during the winter, nonsailing months finds further support from the excavations of these past seasons.|
