In 2020, the series »ARETE. Publikationen des Österreichischen Archäologischen Instituts Athens« was founded to make the achievements of the Athens branch more visible. In the new series, publications of the excavations of the OeAI in Greece appear in the sub-series »Lousoi«, »Aigeira«, »Kakovatos and Triphylia« and »Elis« as well as congress proceedings in the sub-series »Symposia«.

The series is edited by Birgitta Eder (Department of Historical Archaeology of the OeAI), and published by the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
