Consecuently, OAS mission proposes to concentrate their investigations into the area where the monumental remainders are situated, mainly the Theater, the one that is priority for The Municipal Government, because their investment plans and touristic activities are directed toward this theater. The agreement is to start the excavations in 2,007, after the relevant administrative permission.
