Triport represents the type of city without an acropolis.

Triport represents the type of city without an acropolis, but the intention to be in contact with the sea, has led to the capture of a low hill. With an open pier it gives more a civilian than military character. From the traces after the excavations, three construction phases are noticed. Pre-urban, civic and late antiquity peirod. Among the most important objects is the basement of the Afërdita’s temple in the highest part of the hill, tracts of the surrounding walls belonging to different historical periods, the monumental tomb at the bottom of the hill and fragments of walls inside the sea built with large quadratic walls. During the excavations of 1975, the foundations of houses and fragments of the road that connected Triport with Apollonia came to light. The first siege (VI century BC) was built of medium-sized limestone and tuff with visible unworked or slightly worked pages. The second siege is with large square stones slightly worked from the outside. The stones are placed horizontally in the dry and the wall width is over 2m. The third siege is located at the bottom of the hill, with parallelepiped stones with well-drilled square faces. The wall width varies from 2.2m-3.25m and the interior filling is done with medium untreated stones.
