KAMIROS (Code: )


Kamiros, the smallest of the three ancient cities forming the Rhodian state, is in the west part of the island. More isolated and conservative  than commercial Lindos and aristocratic Ialysos, it retained its rural character throughout antiquity. Homer describes it as “arginoeis”, a  reference to its fertile, argillaceous soil. The earliest traces of occupation in the broader area of Kamiros, the Kamiris, go back to Mycenaean times, as is  demonstrated by the cemetery discovered at the village of Kalavarda. Geometric and Archaic Kamiros are known mainly from cemeteries, located  around the ancient city. The cemetery at Makry Langoni has yielded the stele of Krito and Timarista, a famous piece of Classical sculpture, now on display in the Rhodes Museum.
