Was Ayios Kononas the only inhabited place, or were there contemporary settlements in the surrounding area? Is there any consistent relationship between the long-abandoned terraces and the apparently ubiquitous scatter of sherds? Was there any evidence of farming or other economic activity in antiquity, such as mining or the export of timber? Was the area first settled in the Roman period, in Hellenistic times, or earlier? Were any nearby settlements abandoned when people moved to Ayios Kononas? When was the major settlement at Ayios Kononas abandoned, and what then happened in the surrounding countryside?
