Excavations conducted by the Archaeological Society led by archeology professor k.Saranti Symeonoglou since 1984. In a letter from 2001 to the Ministry of Culture, the Directorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities, Mr. Symeonoglou states: Research in Eagle is transitional period from 1995 when the first phase of qualifying was completed excavations. Besides numerous trenches and surveys, our team used various means of subsoil research and high-precision aerial. After my suggestion to the Ministry of Culture, an area of 2000 hectares was declared an archaeological site in 1994. Then carry out intensive efforts to finance systematic excavations, which epitefchtike 1998. Since then deal with the research of the Cave of the Nymphs and theme the expropriation of the site of the ancient city
The data collected from 1984 to 1995 clearly show that the position called today Piso Aetos was an important settlement area of about 400 acres. This space includes 1). the main town which occupies the saddle formed between the mount Petaleiko N Ithaca Aetos hill, is that the neck of the isthmus connecting the northern to the southern part of the island. 2). the citadel is the hill of Aetos and 3). the main cemetery extends northeast of the city. I will try to explain the importance of the settlement with the information I shall here briefly. If in doubt, that we are in ancient Ithaca comes from archaeological and characteristics (such as finding 19 rare local circulation coins which represent Odysseus) and that our archaeological site connected to the Municipality of ancient Ithaca leaves the resolution of 207 BC municipality found in on the Meander Magnesia indicating rare Praflos name (O.Kern, Die Inschriften von Magnesia, Berlin 1900, ap.35 sel.25-26) headstone of Priest Praflou the same time and probably the same person found to our excavations of 1990.
