Tilos

It is the birthplace of poetess Irinna who was born around 350 BC. Although she died very young, the historians of her era considered her equal to Sapfo.

This small island gets its name from the young son of Alia and Helio (sun), according to mythology. Tilos, who loved his mother dearly, had come to the island to find herbs that would make her well. Later on, he returned here to build a temple in honour of Apollo and Poseidon. Herodotus, the historian, mentions that Tilos was a member of the Athenian Alliance in the 5th century BC and that during Cleon's time, Tilos's name appeared on tax lists.
