A large amount of ancient building material, remains from ancient buildings, lithic vessels and sherds of different periods, with the Hellenistic to the Byzantine being predominant, were discovered. A few diagnostic sherds and glass fragments were collected at first. During the next day, a potential Minoan lithic vessel, a marble vessel, a trapezoid fragment potentially deriving from the base of a small Byzantine column, as well as a carved lithic fragment of an unidentified architectural part were also collected.
