The identification of the site

The first illustrated pottery sherds from Dikili Tash, published by F. WELCH, Annual of the British School at Athens 23 (1918-1919), p. 45, fig. 1.

The roman monument of Caius Vibius and the adjacent spring that mark this spot on the way to Kavala are mentioned by many travelers, beginning with Cyriacus of Ancona who passed through the region between 1426 and 1430.

The nearby mound was identified as a prehistoric site in the years 1917-1918 by C. W. Blegen and F. B. Welch, who collected fragments of pottery and other objects from its surface.
