The Hellenic period began around 2,700 years ago in the Troad. This was followed after a short period of turmoil by the Hellenistic around 2,200 years ago. These periods are characterized by the introduction of Greek culture and colonization. Many of these colonial sites have been discovered in recent archaeological survey. Despite this, the settlement data is still incomplete. It is the goal of this study to assist in the locating of Hellenic and Hellenistic sites through the creation of a predictive model using GIS. This model has made evident the need to continue exploration of the Troad.
