Overview

  The famous geographer of antiquity, Pausanias, claimed that Agios Ephstratios's island emerged from the sea the time the Homeric Chrisi sank in the north part of Lemnos. Furthermore he determines that time of the geologic changes in 197 B.C. because of the fact that the island was a new one in the northeast Aegean it was called "Nea", which means new.
  Although there are not many indications, however, we can say that the island was inhabited in the prehistoric period and specifically, in Mycenaean times. There are plenty of remains of the historic period - columns, coins, fragments of vessels, pieces of sculpture.
