LEFTERIS TRAKOS – MANAGER
Many historians believe that our island was named after its wild stony soil. Skiron or Skyron means fragment of stone, or pebble (dictionary of D. Kyriakopoulos, ninth edition, pages 430 and 431).
The ancient names of Pelasgia and Dolopia have been mentioned but in the epics of Homer the island was written about four times, and the name Skyros was used. As stated in other ancient texts, the island has been inhabited by Kares, Cretans and Dolopes.
