We report on two magnetic surveys performed in July and September 2015 at the ancient Hellenistic city of Antigonea, located in southern Albania. The main objective of the two surveys was to find the city theatre and determine possible sites of future excavations. We suggest a new technique for dense collecting of magnetic data along difficult terrains, with minimization of the topographic effect. Evidence of a possible location of the theatre was found along the southern slope of the Jermë hill, just outside the city walls. Other interesting structures indicate the presence of many other buildings in this part of the Antigonea settlement.
