The subject of this work is the revision and study of the contexts of the geometric era excavated by Giulio Jacopi and by the Italian mission he directed between 1928 and 1933 at the site of Camiro, on the west coast of the island of Rhodes, and published immediately after. in volumes IV and VI / VII of the journal Clara Rhodos.
Several reasons led me to start this work of revision.

This revision, of an excavation that can now be defined as "old", does not appear moreover in this isolated historical moment. Thanks to the complex situations of universities and superintendencies, the need to save from oblivion - and often from decay - the huge quantities of materials stored and sometimes forgotten in warehouses and archives has gradually become more concrete, to the point of becoming an address important and desirable study. In our case, the need for a new study became more pressing for two further reasons. In the first place, the contexts excavated in Camiro constitute a very important collection of information: of great interest for the Greek world of the early Iron Age in general, fundamental for the study of the Dodecanese and the Eastern Aegean. Despite this, their resonance in research on the subject has not always been what one would expect: Jacopi's hasty publication and the inconsistencies and gaps that are found in some parts of the work have led several scholars, especially foreigners, to believe, wrongly, the materials and reports relating to it are completely unreliable, thus excluding important information from scientific discourse. It is therefore one of the objectives of this work to reorganize the contexts and materials, so as to offer them to the scientific community in a clearer and more readable form, so that they can become part of the archaeological debate again.
