Part II is "An account of the ruined houses and other buildings with chapters on loom weights and on lamps." Olynthus was an ancient city of Chalcidice, built mostly on two flat-topped hills near the neck of Greece's Kassandra Peninsula. The probable site of Olynthus was identified as early as 1902. Between 1914 and 1916 plans were made for an excavation by the British School at Athens, but these fell through. Excavations began in 1928. Prof. D. M. Robinson of Johns Hopkins, under the American School for Classical Studies at Athens, conducted four seasons of work: in 1928, 1931, 1934, and 1939. The results of the excavations were digested into fourteen folio volumes.
