A pilot underwater archaeological investigation took place in October 2021 in the waters outside Asine and Tolon. The project was a collaboration between the Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities, the Swedish Institute at Athens and Stockholm University, with participants also from the University of Gothenburg and the company Nordic Maritime Group. The project aimed to document the seabed with a so-called “sidescan sonar” (an advanced sonar) and to carry out dives at anomalies that were identified. The project also included an investigation of the seabed around the Kastraki promontory itself, outside the ancient settlement.
