Archaeological interest at the site started to take place after Kamel Abu Elsa'dat, an amateur diver, discovered a huge statue for a lady in the form of goddess Isis together with other archaeological objects in 1961. Rock platforms also appeared in this area.

In 1992 the mission of the European Institute for Underwater Archaeology, made a topographic survey on the Eastern Harbor and it lead to the discovery of Antirhodos Island and the armlet known as the TIMONIOM peninsula.  Remains of buildings that might belong to a theatre and the temple of Poseidon were also discovered. The Mission also discovered various architectural and archaeological elements like the Sphynx statues and the shipwreck of a ship dated to the Greco Roman Age.
