Adamantios Sampson

Adamantios Sampson is an archaeologist from Rhodes, Greece. He works as an Inspector of Antiquities for the Greek Administration of Antiquity. He is specialised in research on prehistoric (Neolithic and Mesolithic) sites in southern Greece. Among the sites he has studied are the "Cave of Cyclope" on the islet of Youra near Alonnisos in the Sporades; the islet of Gyali near Nisyros, and the "Cave of the Lakes" near Kalavryta in the Peloponnese. Among his best-known finds are the so-called Youra Potsherds, prehistoric pottery fragments incised with markings that some people believe resemble letters of the Greek alphabet.
