Spirals, shapes of ships, tools in triangular shapes were mostly carved by the Neolithic inhabitants of Astypalea.

One of the first findings of the Professor of Prehistoric Archaeology, Andreas Vlachopoulos, was rock carvings located in Vathi at the Pirgos Peninsula and date back to 4th-3rd millennium B.C.

In 2013, more unexpected findings were discovered, which present an aspect from the 'private lives' of the ancient Greek inhabitants in the early 6th and late 5th centuries B.C.

The Secretary General of the Archaeological Society, Vasilios Petrakos, made extensive reference to two erotic inscriptions that were discovered and which depict two phalluses from the right angle.
