“Karpathos! Full of history!” from Panos S.

The Ancient Sacred Istia motivated me to search for the history of the island. Karpathos according to Homer or Tetrapolis or Anemoessa or Scarpanto according to the Latins and the Francolevantines is the island where the myths of Proteus, Athena and Prometheus meet the history of the Minoans, the Athenians, the Rhodians and many conquerors from modern history. And then the Romans, the Byzantines, the Genoese, the Knights of St. John, the Venetians, the Ottomans with Barbarossa, then again the Italians and finally back to us in 1948! What history has “anchored” on this island here!
