Photike is located in the northern part of the Kokytos valley, close to modern Paramythia in Thesprotia. It was a Roman colonial town, probably founded during the reign of Augustus, which later developed into a Medieval episcopal see. Our knowledge of Photike has until now been based on Roman inscriptions and some partly excavated churches dating to the Early Christian and Middle Byzantine periods.
The Early Christian basilica of Paliambela at Arethousa, located ca. 20 km west of Amphipolis in Northern Greece, was discovered in 1994 while preparing a forestry road.

The project focusing on stone poetry, which started in 2003, aims to collect and publish the over 1,000 known Greek poems cut in stone from 30 BC to 600 AD in the area of modern Greece.
The fifth-century BC orthogonal city grid is the best-known and most-researched aspect of urban Naxos, the first Greek colonial foundation in Sicily. It was founded in 734 BC by settlers from Chalcis in Euboea and Naxos in the Cyclades and it was completely destroyed in 403 BC by Syracuse.
The Kyllene Harbour Project was initiated in 2007, and the survey has been continued in 2008 and 2009. It is an interdisciplinary study of the coastal and underwater remains of an ancient naval base and Frankish harbour, and it is conducted as a synergasia between the Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities and the Finnish Institute at Athens with the co-operation of the Sixth Ephorate of Byzantine Antiquities at Patras.
The collaboration between the Ephorate of Antiquities of West Attica, Piraeus and the Islands and the Finnish Institute at Athens will be carried out over five years (2016–2020) and it will concentrate on mapping the unbuilt part of the harbour town of ancient Salamis which is currently on dry land at Ambelakia Bay.
