Ancient excavations already focused on the Agora in which important monuments such as a temple, the Bouleuterium and part of the koilon of the theater.

Lolos and his team carried out an intensive geophysical study in an area of more than 2,500 square kilometers of the hellenistic city. More than 800 sherds and tiles have been counted and up to 1,000 architectural objects have already been registered.

I was born in Madrid on August 27, 1988 and since then I started a work of which there is no example. Fascinated by both numbers and letters and a lover of the unknown, that is why I am a future graduate in Economics and Journalism, interested in understanding life and the forces that have shaped it. Everything is easier, more useful and more exciting if, with a look at our past, we can improve our future and for that… History.
