"The material we've found helps us mostly to identify the time frame. For the moment  we are talking about a thriving Hellenistic period, from the third to the first century BC," says Professor Saimir Shpuza.

"Interestingly, it is located close to Shkodra and Lezha. The fortification wall is very magnificent, 3 meters and a half wide. We still do not know the ancient name of this city but we are sure it is a previously unknown city," says Piot Dyczek.

This discovery, apart from the archaeological importance and the potential for tourism development, is expected to bring valuable information to the early civilization of the area and beyond.
