At both sites, the earliest fortification systems are dated to the late LH IIIA period, while the final fortification systems (including hidden water-supply systems at both sites) are dated to the advanced-LH IIIB period. The Mycenaean fortifications of the Athenian Acropolis are said to be of LH IIIBdate, although the evidence for such a dating is not very abundant.
