I (Torben) am working on 2 projects about the Eupalinos tunnel (more info about this will come very soon). During this work (using Google Earth) I observed something strange on top of the nearby mountain, and I also found, that Jan and I during our research in the area missed the last shaft before the tunnel (see the Eupalinos Tunnel page.).
Jan has solved many problems related to my projects (measurements, photo documentation...) and without his assistance it would have been impossible to do it.
To day Jan decided also to solve these new problems, and made a MC-tour to the mountain top and to the Agiades area.
The following pictures are from this tour.
