The ancient oil mill used to produce olive oil was found during digging to repair the Thermi-Pigi-Lambou Mylon provincial road and has been put on dispaly in the atrium of the island's new archaeological museum.

The Lesvos antiquities service said the olive press was part of a large farming and craftwork complex linked to the production and exploitation of the island's produce, such as grains, olive oil and wine, which had been in constant use from the 2nd until the 6th centuries AD.
