Abstract: During this fourth season of our excavations at Kommos we completed all major excavation of the Late Minoan (LM) houses on the hilltop as well as the LM house discovered earlier on the hillside. Soundings in the Middle Minoan (MM) levels in both these areas proved to be profitable, especially on the hillside where an intact MM storeroom was found within most informative stratigraphic contexts. In the Greek sanctuary to the south two more, relatively large altars were found within the deep sand. West of them we discovered a Greek temple of which the outer walls are destroyed but the interior is intact. Below the floor of the temple is an unusual shrine of Late Geometric/Early Archaic date. Further west, along the shore, lies a group of Minoan buildings of a monumental character not hitherto encountered on the Kommos site.
