Modern Description: Under excavation (2013-5) by a joint team from Princeton University and the Greek Archaeological Service, which has uncovered a 4th c. BC house and roads.
The caves in the area were inhabited from the Neolithic to the Late Bronze Age.
The city was founded by Thasians in the 7th century BC, in order to control the Thracian plain in the hinterland. Located on the Molyvote (Kursumlu) peninsula, W of Lake Ismaris. The ruins of the ancient city are poorly preserved but the ancient harbour installations are visible. Noteworthy are the tunnels of the city's aqueduct with conduits and wells (5th century BC) on the shore. Tumuli in the locality of Mitriko. Finds from the region in the Komotini Archaeological Museum.
