Abstract: Let $ G$ be a locally compact group and let $ A(G)$ be its Fourier algebra. A closed subset $ H$ of $ G$ is said to be a Helson set if the restriction homomorphism $ \phi :A(G)\rightarrow C_{0}(H)$, $ \phi (a)=a_{\vert H}$, is surjective. In this paper, under the hypothesis that $ G$ is amenable, we prove that every Helson subset $ H$ of $ G$ that is also a set of synthesis is a Ditkin set. This result is new even for $ G=\mathbb{R}$.
