Geographical position of the Chora Pharos
(nowadays Starogradsko polje), climate conditions
and brief historical development of colonization on the
island of Hvar are described in the paper. Also described
is how Greek from the island of Paros established
the town Pharos (today’s Stari Grad) and how
they constructed Chora Pharos (today’s Starogradsko
polje). They divided the field Starogradsko polje into
rectangular parcels with dimensions 1 Greek stage
× 5 Greek stage (181 m × 905 m). The large project
“Starogradsko polje” demonstrated that one Pharos
foot equals 0.3026 m. They used the groma for pegging
out orthogonal angles. Finally, there is a photograph
of the boundary stone from the Chora Pharos
(Starogradsko polje) from the 4th century before
Christ which is deposited in the Archaeological Museum
in Zagreb. This is the oldest boundary stone in
Croatia and as geodesists, we can consider it a geodetic
