Neolithic settlement of the 5th millennium BC, near the sea, with significant residential remains and tombs. There was a stone enclosure around the settlement. Along with the local pottery, anthropomorphic figurines with elements of the Balkan tradition were found.
The settlement continued to be inhabited during the Early Bronze Age (3200 - 2000 BC). The neighboring cave (the so-called "Cyclops") was used as a place of worship. In the 7th century BC Greek settlers - perhaps from Samothrace - established a small trading post, which existed until Roman times. Dwellings, repositories filled with amphorae and a Roman wall on the acropolis were excavated.
