The Romans invaded Greece in the 2nd century BC and used the island as a place for ostracized polites.Afto continued during the Byzantine period, the island was sacked again and again peirates.I disaster came in 1965 when a terrible earthquake shook the island, and almost all buildings They destroyed. People, who had lived until then in the old village, moved down to Patitiri. The old village was left also for many years, but in the 1970s the old, ruined houses were bought, mainly by Germans, and the village began to slowly come to life again.
