The latest exploration in the Aegean brought him in the island of Skopelos. The green paradise made him so excited and he decided to stay permanently on the island. He did build his first settlement in Skopelos and not where he landed in the bay of Stafilos. Prince Stafilos became a hero and mentioned among the fifty Argonauts who traveled with Jason to Colchis to get the Golden Fleece. In 1936 the archaeologist N. Plat , revealed the findings of a Minoan tomb, which was attributed to the grapes. Among the rich grave goods was found a sword with a gold handle, which is exposed in the Archaeological Museum of Athens.
