Kalymnos History

Kalymnos History



According to mythology, Uranus and Gaia had many children. The Titans, the Giants, the Cyclopes, and the Hundred-handed. Aware of the fact that one of his sons would dethrone him, Uranus threw them to Tartara, at the bottom of the earth. One of his sons was Kalydnos who fell on a piece of land, which later emerged, to the surface forming a complex of island called "The Islands of Kalydnos" or "Kalydna".
Today, every island has its own name and they all surround the largest, called Kalymnos. The island, with its huge mountains, has two small plains, which, if viewed from above, resemble the legs of Kalydnos. According to myth, Kalydnos, once the God of Ades, became a sea God yet no evidence of his worship was ever found. The first people who inhabited Kalymnos were Kares, Leleges and Pelasgians.

The Achaians came to the island after the end of the Trojan War, establishing the town of Argos in the area of Amphitheaters. Later, Dorians from Peloponnese settled here, living harmoniously with the locals. After the Greek cities of Asia Minor submitted to the Turks, Kalymnos came under the rule of Artemisia, queen of Alikarnos a true friend of the Persians. The island was a member of the First Athenian Alliance supporting the Athenians in the Peloponnese war, only to come once more under the rule of the Persians and Artemisia B', as the Peace of Andalkides (387 BC) left the islands exposed.
Ptolemeus, a General of Alexander the Great, liberated Kalymnos in 333 BC. During the Hellenistic Era, Kalymnos submitted to Kos, while, in 44 BC, the Romans who removed all the art treasures and imposed heavy, unbearable taxation, on the locals, conquered the island. In the Byzantine Era (330-1204 AD), the island suffered pirate raids and the rule of the Persians and the Saracenes while the universal earthquake in 535 AD altered the shape of Kalymnos.

Imia (Greek: Ίμια) is a pair of two small uninhabited islets in the Aegean Sea, situated between the Greek island chain of the Dodecanese, 5.5 nmi (10.2 km; 6.3 mi) east of the Greek island Kalymnos, and 2.5 nmi (4.6 km; 2.9 mi) southeast of the nearest small Greek islet, Kalolimnos.

1985... Ήμουν ένας από τους 4-5 στρατιώτες εκεί για την θητεία μου,
αποσπασθείς από Κω...
παραλία... πριόνες (όσοι ξέρουν τι είναι, ξέρουν)
μανταρίνια (τα πρώτα σε όλη την Ελλάδα)
Θα ήθελα να πάω πάλι...

Άνθρωποι ειλικρινείς, ίσως ωμοί αλλά ευθείς και ντόμπροι,
ασυμβίβαστοι, δεν καλουπώνονται σε καθωσπρεπισμούς και τυπικότητες,
τοπικιστές και "αντιτουριστικοί",
γνήσιοι,
Ακρίτες!

Νησί με πόνο,
Νησί με ιστορία,
ένας μεγάλος βράχος που χιλιάδες χρόνια προσπαθούν να τον δαμάσουν.
οι Καλύμνιοι δεν τα παρατάνε, φεύγουν μακρυά αλλά όλοι τους ως άλλοι Οδυσσέες πάντα γυρίζουν.

Χαίρομαι που έστω έτσι, έχουμε νέα σου!
