At the pretty spot called Skaloma (to the eastof the Vouliagmeni lagoon, on the way to Makryloi) Mycenean tombs dating from 1600-1500 BC have been discovered.

A total of twelve shaft tombs, dug out of hillside of soft oil, have come to light. The tombs are circular in shape and roofed with protruding domes. The grave-goods accompanying the dead were unusually rich and impress with the delicacy of their technique and their linear decoration.
