The Princeton Encyclopedia of Classical Sites


  A small island located to the W of Kalymnos. The narrow strait between the two islands must have served as anchorage in ancient times. A tentative theory suggests that the deme-center of Panormos, a deme of Kalymnos, lay on Telendos, but we lack evidence. Ruins of a Hellenic fort have been observed in the N part of the island. On the E side there is a badly preserved rock-cut theater. Other ruins of Roman and later times are evident throughout Telendos.
