Already from toponym Zidine can be concluded that today uninhabited part of the peninsula Lopar had an interesting past. The first thing a visitor sees are terraced walls rising from the sea to the top of the plains. Among the white stones which in the midst of marl and sand acts strange, is a red refracted ceramics. Here and there, the rain washed the glass and small metal objects. A little further on, in the bay Siće is a source of drinking water that has long given life to this part of Lopar. Around the source and along the coast have been found stone tools and arrow keys, evidence of settlement in the Paleolithic (Mirko Malez: Lopar Paleolithic site on the island of Rab, Zagreb, 1974). In recent years, there were beautiful specimens found visible in a picturesque enclosed material (stored: IRC, Rab). The walls give the image of size of the ancient buildings. In 1982 group of students of archeology in Zagreb and Ljubljana on their own initiative cleared the site of blackberry bushes and thorny bushes, with the intention of gathering information for starting summer archaeological workshops. They investigated the size of buildings, and made a groundplan. Among the multitude of rocks they encountered several types of marble and other processed materials. They encountered the colorful mosaic stones and bits of plaster and wall drawings.In the plains yellowish and greenish glass, fragments of glasses and glass legs were found.
