The Coastal Ridge denotes a long ridge that extends along the Gazipasha shore between the ancient sites of Kestros and Antiochia ad Cragum. Guda Tepe (RC 9712, fortified village) sits atop the tall promontory at the northern end of the ridge. Along its length, the team investigated small settlements of various eras (RC 9712, necropolis; RC 9716, fortified village; RC 9717, pre-Classical settlement; RC 9802, isolated settlement, and RC 9813, sherd scatter), as well as several press installations (RC 9714, 9715, 9803). The team extended the survey all the way to Antiochia ad Cragum; however, it has characterized remains further south as likely satellite settlements to the urban sites of Nephelion and Antiochia ad Cragum. The RCSP survey team first investigated the ridge in 1997, employing coarse interval survey techniques with minimal grab samples. The team returned to the Coastal Ridge in 1998 to conduct more exhaustive close-interval survey, while employing a combination of grab sampling techniques.
