The Archaeological Site of Kale-Krševica / Damastion:

The organizational system of this area, the type of architecture, the imported pottery, the coins, along with the other finds, clearly indicate not only a Greek presence, but also the importance of this settlement, which maintained close connections with the Aegean during its entire existence. These findings raise important questions concerning the function and name of this northernmost settlement with its Greek characteristics. These questions would seem to indicate a connection to Damastion, the mining city recorded only by Strabo in his Geography and which has never been located. There is now more and more reason to assume that Damastion was situated in the Južna Morava valley at the site Kale in Krševica. Decisive answers will be provided only by future investigations.
