A couple of chairs and a bottle of Ouzo on the small round table under an old arched terrace, are waiting for the casual passerby, searching for a relaxing corner. Kimolos is an island with rich history records. According to tradition, it is named after Kimolos, the very first resident of the island. Echinousa is also a recorded name of the island during the ancient times, probably because of the snake Echidna (viper), being common even today on the island. Since the ancient era, it has been a battlefield between Ancient Athens, the ruler of the island, and Sparta, the ruler of Milos. Since those times, the rocky lands of the southern coast provided Kimolia Gi-Kimolian Earth, a valuable trade good, which made the island a major trade hub. Ottoman Empire ruled the island until 1829, when the newborn Greek state annexed it along with the rest of Cyclades.
