Koukonesi is a small island, situated in the Moudros harbour, west of
Poliochne, on the island of Lemnosin the Aegean Sea. The island is a very important archaeologicalfind due to its possible links with Troy. It has been found that Koukonesi towns are of the same chronologicalperiod with some of the cities of Troy. The best preserved settlements found on Koukonesi are from the Middle Bronze Age, 2000 BC— 1650 BC. The findings have shown that Koukonsei's inhabitants had close commercial relations with Asia Minor, other Aegean Sea islands and mainland Greece. Greek archaeologists also discovered Mycenaean ceramics of the late 13th century BCwhich may prove that a permanent settlement was established around the epoch of the Trojan war.
