Ancient Methone (Pieria) was a major port in northern Greece from the 1st millennium. Until Philip II of Macedon destroyed the city in 35a. Excavations carried out since 2003 by the Greek Archaeological Service have unearthed Bronze Age burials, important Early Iron Age deposits and inscrip-tions, and direct evidence of the Macedonian siege, destruction, and aftermath, thereby extending the history of the settlement from the Late Neolithic period past the 4th century. In 2012 an international team joined the Ephorate of Antiquities of Pieria to study and publish these discoveries, and as the Ancient Methone Archaeological Project, launched a fresh phase of multidisciplinary eldwork from 2014 to 2017
