The remains were unearthed and are being researched by the Austrian Archaeological Institute together with researchers from the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Kiel University and the Ephorate of Antiquities of Elis.

The location where the remains were found corresponds to the area referred to by ancient Greek historian Strabo who described the shrine some 2,000 years ago.
