Late Roman settlement constitutes the first layer of excavations in north of Canakkale-İzmir highway. The terracotta pipes belonging to the water system brought to light in this cultural layer in which often the Roman structures have been used as renovations and by annexes. Walls belonging to the Hellenistic period were found underneath this stratum which was largely destroyed due to agricultural ploughing. Although materials were recovered, any pieces of architecture from the 5th and 4th centuries BC were not encountered. However, a layer showing strong signs of a big fire coinciding the first half of the 6th century BC was encountered and it was considered as the signs of the war that lead to the exile of the Cimmerians from Antandros. The existence of architectural structures dating back to late 8th century BC was established.
