Antiquity of Piraeus

Walking near the Cruise port of Piraeus, we saw this archaeological site. Evidently, the archaeological ruins were discovered during the construction work which was brought to halt. There is an extension of this site on the other side of the street.
We had an impression that this construction site has been abandoned for quite a while, although the archaeological remains seemed to be clearned quite recently (otherwise there should be much more weeds).

There are some quite handsome stone blocks, which I guessed were part of a public construction.

The onwer of the land should be quite desperate when he found this 'treasure'.
