Pylos in Elis is mentioned in Xenophon, Diodorus, Strabo, and Pausanias (see Coleman 1986, Appendix 1 for ancient testimonia). The site was excavated by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens in 1968 and 1970 under emergency conditions ahead of the anticipated flooding of the site due to dam construction. The excavation report (Coleman) was finally published in 1986.
