The most important plains except the capital, Vathy , in the northeast, are that of Karlovasi , in the northwest, Pythagoreio , in the southeast, and Marathokampos in the southwest. The island's population is 33,, which is the 9th most populous of the Greek islands.

The Samian climate is typically Mediterranean, with mild rainy winters, and warm rainless summers. Samos' relief is dominated by two large mountains, Ampelos and Kerkis anc.

The mountains are a continuation of the Mycale range on the Anatolian mainland. According to Strabo , the name Samos is from Phoenician meaning "rise by the shore". Samos is home to many surprising species including the golden jackal , stone marten , wild boar , flamingos and monk seal. Its climate is mild and wet in winter and dry in summer. In classical antiquity the island was a center of Ionian culture and luxury, renowned for its Samian wines and its red pottery called Samian ware by the Romans.

Its most famous building was the Ionic order archaic Temple of goddess Hera —the Heraion. Concerning the earliest history of Samos, literary tradition is singularly defective. At the time of the great migrations it received an Ionian population which traced its origin to Epidaurus in Argolis: Samos became one of the twelve members of the Ionian League. By the 7th century BC it had become one of the leading commercial centers of Greece.

This early prosperity of the Samians seems largely due to the island's position near trade-routes, which facilitated the importation of textiles from inner Asia Minor, but the Samians also developed an extensive oversea commerce.

They helped to open up trade with the population that lived around the Black Sea as well as with Egypt, Cyrene Libya , Corinth, and Chalcis. This caused them to become bitter rivals with Miletus. Samos was able to become so prominent despite the growing power of the Persian empire because of the alliance they had with the Egyptians and their powerful fleet.

The Samians are also credited with having been the first Greeks to reach the Straits of Gibraltar. The feud between Miletus and Samos broke out into open strife during the Lelantine War 7th century BC , with which we may connect a Samian innovation in Greek naval warfare, the use of the trireme. The result of this conflict was to confirm the supremacy of the Milesians in eastern waters for the time being; but in the 6th century the insular position of Samos preserved it from those aggressions at the hands of Asiatic kings to which Miletus was henceforth exposed.

About BC, when the existing oligarchy was overturned by the tyrant Polycrates , Samos reached the height of its prosperity. Its navy not only protected it from invasion, but ruled supreme in Aegean waters. The city was beautified with public works, and its school, of sculptors, metal-workers and engineers achieved high repute.

In the 6th century BC Samos was ruled by the famous tyrant Polycrates. During his reign, two working groups under the lead of the engineer Eupalinos dug a tunnel through Mount Kastro to build an aqueduct to supply the ancient capital of Samos with fresh water, as this was of the utmost defensive importance since being underground, it was not easily detected by an enemy who could otherwise cut off the supply.

Eupalinos' tunnel is particularly notable because it is the second earliest tunnel in history to be dug from both ends in a methodical manner. After Polycrates' death Samos suffered a severe blow when the Persian Achaemenid Empire conquered and partly depopulated the island.

It had regained much of its power when in BC it joined the general revolt of the Ionian city-states against Persia; but owing to its long-standing jealousy of Miletus it rendered indifferent service, and at the decisive battle of Lade BC part of its contingent of sixty ships was guilty of outright treachery. In the Delian League they held a position of special privilege and remained actively loyal to Athens until when a dispute with Miletus, which the Athenians had decided against them, induced them to secede.

With a fleet of sixty ships they held their own for some time against a large Athenian fleet led by Pericles himself, but after a protracted siege were forced to capitulate.

Most in the past had been forced to pay tribute but Samos was only told to repay the damages that the rebellion cost the Athenians: At the end of the Peloponnesian War, Samos appears as one of the most loyal dependencies of Athens, serving as a base for the naval war against the Peloponnesians and as a temporary home of the Athenian democracy during the revolution of the Four Hundred at Athens BC , and in the last stage of the war was rewarded with the Athenian franchise.

This friendly attitude towards Athens was the result of a series of political revolutions which ended in the establishment of a democracy. After the downfall of Athens, Samos was besieged by Lysander and again placed under an oligarchy.

In the withdrawal of the Spartan navy induced the island to declare its independence and reestablish a democracy, but by the peace of Antalcidas it fell again under Persian dominion. It was recovered by the Athenians in after a siege of eleven months, and received a strong body of military settlers, the cleruchs which proved vital in the Social War BC. After the Lamian War , when Athens was deprived of Samos, the vicissitudes of the island can no longer be followed. Perhaps the most famous persons ever connected with classical Samos were the philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras and the fabulist Aesop.

In the town of Tigani was renamed Pythagoreio in honor of the philosopher. Other notable personalities include the philosopher Epicurus , who was of Samian birth and the astronomer Aristarchus of Samos , whom history credits with the first recorded heliocentric model of the solar system.

The historian Herodotus , known by his Histories resided in Samos for a while. There was a school of sculptors and architects that included Rhoecus , the architect of the Temple of Hera Olympia , and the great sculptor and inventor Theodorus , who is said to have invented with Rhoecus the art of casting statues in bronze. The vases of Samos were among the most characteristic products of Ionian pottery in the 6th century. For some time about — BC Samos served as a base for the Egyptian fleet of the Ptolemies , at other periods it recognized the overlordship of Seleucid Syria.

Enrolled from in the Roman province of Asia Minor, Samos sided with Aristonicus and Mithridates 88 against its overlord, and consequently forfeited its autonomy, which it only temporarily recovered between the reigns of Augustus and Vespasian. Nevertheless, Samos remained comparatively flourishing, and was able to contest with Smyrna and Ephesus the title "first city of lonia"; [1] it was chiefly noted as a health resort and for the manufacture of pottery.

Since Emperor Diocletian's Tetrarchy it became part of the Provincia Insularum, in the diocese of Asiana in the eastern empire's pretorian prefecture of Oriens. As part of the Byzantine Empire , Samos became part of the namesake theme. After the 13th century it passed through much the same changes of government as Chios , and, like the latter island, became the property of the Genoese firm of Giustiniani —; interrupted by an Ottoman period.

It was also ruled by Tzachas between — Samos came under Ottoman rule in [11] or c. The island remained desolate for almost a full century before the Ottoman authorities, by now in secure control of the Aegean, undertook a serious effort to repopulate the island. Settlers, including Greeks and Arvanites from the Peloponnese and the Ionian Islands , as well as the descendants of the original inhabitants who had fled to Chios , were attracted through the concession of certain privileges such as a seven-year tax exemption, a permanent exemption from the tithe in exchange for a lump annual payment of 45, piastres , and a considerable autonomy in local affairs.

It was not until the midth century that the coast began to be densely settled as well. Under Ottoman rule, Samos Ottoman Turkish: The Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca that concluded the war contained clauses that enabled a great expansion of the commercial activities of the Ottoman Empire's Greek Orthodox population.

Samian merchants also took advantage of this, and an urban mercantile class based on commerce and shipping began to grow. Under the leadership of Lykourgos Logothetis , in the Karmanioloi gained power in the island, introducing liberal and democratic principles and empowering the local popular assembly at the expense of the land-holding notables.

Their rule lasted until , when they were overthrown by the Ottoman authorities and their leaders expelled from the island.

In March , the Greek War of Independence broke out, and on 18 April, under the leadership of Logothetis and the Karmanioloi , Samos too joined the uprising. In May, a revolutionary government with its own constitution was set up to administer the island, mostly inspired by Logothetis. The Samians successfully repulsed three Ottoman attempts to recapture the island: In , the island became formally incorporated into the Hellenic State under Governor Ioannis Kapodistrias , as part of the province of the Eastern Sporades , but the London Protocol of excluded Samos from the borders of the independent Greek state.

The Samians refused to accept their re-subordination to the Sultan, and Logothetis declared Samos to be an independent state, governed as before under the provisions of the constitution. Finally, due to the pressure of the Great Powers , Samos was declared an autonomous, tributary principality under Ottoman suzerainty. The Samians still refused to accept this decision until an Ottoman fleet enforced it in May , forcing the revolutionary leadership and a part of the population to flee to independent Greece, where they settled near Chalkis.

It was governed by a Christian of Greek descent though nominated by the Porte, who bore the title of "Prince. These were chosen by him out of eight candidates nominated by the four districts of the island: Vathy, Chora, Marathokampos, and Karlovasi.

The actual legislative power belonged to a chamber of 36 deputies, presided over by the Greek Orthodox Metropolitan. The modern capital of the island was, until the early 20th century, at Chora, about 2 miles 3. After reconsidering political conditions, the capital was moved to Vathy, at the head of a deep bay on the North coast.

This became the residence of the prince and the seat of government. Since then a new town has grown, with a harbour. The island was finally united with the Kingdom of Greece in , a few months after the outbreak of the First Balkan War. Although other Aegean islands had been quickly captured by the Greek Navy , Samos was initially left to its existing status quo out of a desire not to upset the Italians in the nearby Dodecanese. The Greek fleet landed troops on the island on 13 March The clashes with the Ottoman garrison were short-lived as the Ottomans withdrew to the Anatolian mainland, so that the island was securely in Greek hands by 16 March.

Samos was briefly taken over by Greek and British forces on 31 October, but following the Allied defeat in the Battle of Leros and a fierce aerial bombardment, the island was abandoned on 19 November and taken over by German troops.

The German occupation lasted until 4 October , when the island was liberated by the Greek Sacred Band. Samos is a separate regional unit of the North Aegean region, and the only municipality of the regional unit.
