Samos Eupalinos

First manhole (3)

The duct of the aqueduct of ancient Samos crosses two ravines in a stone channel of some 0,7 x 0,7 m cross-section. The first manhole can easily be found (waypoint S3-026) (nr 3 on Abb. 2 in H.J. Kienasts book “Die Wasserleitung des Eupalinos auf Samos (1995), nr 19 in the Samos-series of the DAI in Athens). Note the remains of the contours of the square manhole.
