Archontiki - Archaeological Site

In 1961 S. Charitonidis identified Mycenaean tombs in the southwestern part of the island, in Archontiki. From 1983 to 1997, 163 tombs were surveyed--a whole necropolis (with a vaulted tomb among the findings). A short distance from the cemetery and along the beach, parts of a Mycenaean settlement were brought to light (the northeasternmost known Mycenaean settlement). The site was restored in 2008 with funding from the Regional Business Program for the North Aegean. The area has signs of habitation from the Neolithic to the Protogeometric period, while the cemetery and the settlement date back to 1500 BC. The settlement was deserted at the end of the millennium after an earthquake. Ruins of the settlement and the cemetery can still be seen today, some in the sea. Very close to the beach, we see the islet of Daskalio. In ancient times, Daskalio and Archontiki were linked, forming a small peninsula with a natural harbor which travelers called ‘Da Scalio.’
