On the small island of modern Kephalos in the Ambracian Gulf, archaeologists discovered a settlement, a pair of Christian basilicas, and other associated structures and small finds. The site may have begun as a refuge settlement in the late fifth / early sixth century CE and seems to have continued in use, possibly with a late monastic function, into the 10th century.
