On the north-western shore of Rhodes, close to the headland of Agios Minas (the Ancient Mylantio) lies the third of Rhode’s ancient cities- Kamiros. Kamiros was one of the three large Doric cities of the island, which merged with Ialyssos and Lindos in the 5th century B.C. to form the powerful city – state of Rhodes. Although it was established by the Dorians, it seems like the first inhabitants of the area were Achaeans, as the ruins of an ancient Mycenaean necropolis close to the village of Kalovarda reveal.
