Abstract

The aim of this paper is to use notches as sea level indicators to identify former shoreline positions in the area of Theologos and to show that their presence and development is associated with vertical movements of possible coseismic origin. First, the genesis of notch shapes is discussed and a brief presentation of the geological setting and some archaeological and seismological information of the study area are summarized. Then, the methodology used and the main results obtained are presented and discussed
