Samos is a Greek island in the eastern Aegean Sea and belongs to the prefecture of
Samos. The island is now known for its natural beauty, the traditional wine and touristic
attractions, but also for the prominent personalities that emerged during the course
of Greek history, such as the great mathematician Pythagoras, the philosopher Aesop
and the astronomer and mathematician Aristarchus, who allegedly designed the first
heliocentric chart of our planetary system. Furthermore, Samos is also known for
the bronze statues and vases that were painted around 550 BC.
Samos is located 10 miles from Ikaria island, while the Asian coast (Turkey) is very

East is 26 miles and the maximum width from North to South is 11 miles, while the
maximum altitude is 1443 m (top of mountain “Kerketefs”). The perimeter of the coastline

of the great mathematician Pythagoras, the astronomer and mathematician Aristarchus,
the philosopher Epicurus and according to many testimonies that of Asopos.
