Site in Thessaly, Greece, occupied from the Early Bronze Age until the Hellenistic period. A large structure of the 14th century BC might be a Mycenaean palace. A tholos tomb was found just north of Volos. Excavations have been carried out on two Mycenaean palaces in the old town, Ano Vólos. Ano Vólos was the site of ancient Iolcos, inhabited since the beginning of the Bronze Age (c 2500 BC) and capital of Mycenaean Thessaly. The Neolithic towns of Sesklo and Dimini also stood near present-day Vólos, and just south of it are the ruins of Pagasae, a prominent port from Mycenaean to late Classical times.
