Taverna Agios Ioannis
From the Theatral Area, the 15m-wide grand stairway leads to the Propylon, which was a porch. Below the Propylon are the storerooms that still contain pithoi (storage urns). The square hall next to the storerooms is thought to have been an office, where tablets containing Linear A script were found beneath the floor in 1955. South of the storeroom a corridor led to the west side of the Central Court. South of the corridor is a lustral basin, rooms with benches and a pillar crypt similar to that at Knossos.
