Milos Antimilos

* It is 5n.m. away from Milos, on its NW. It covers about 8km2. It consists of volcanic rocks 0.4 million years of age and it belongs to the volcanic arch of the Aegean. At the top of the island there is an impressive volcanic crater. Its slopes are steep and they rise sharply 670m high from the sea. It is under special protection as a rare species of wild goat lives here. An ancient tank discovered shows that the animals were protected for their meat and the island was an important hunting place for centuries. * Source: Atlas of Geological Monuments of the Aegean/Publication of the Ministry of the Aegean, 2002,
