Mykonos mix 3


Archaeological findings indicate that the first settlers of the island Mykonos were members of the Neolithic tribe Kares, in 3000 BC. But the historical sources suggest that the first settlers were probably Ionians from Athens who lived here in the 11th century BC. This nation along with its leader, known as Ippokli, inhabited the territory which is today the capital city, Chora.
The distance from the island of Delos (only 2 km away), which was greatly developed, had the influence and Mykonos became a member of the Delian Alliance. Thanks to that Mykonos experienced economic prosperity, although the island itself was quite a poor agricultural source. The downside is that with the collapse of Delos, Mykonos had some critical moments as well...

from excavations in the ancient site of Ftelia, that the first inhabitants of the island were Cares, succeeded by Phoenicians, Egyptians and then Minoans who were followed by the Ionians. The ancient Mykonos developed a great culture and in fact the earliest amphora of the ancient times has been discovered on Mykonos and it is known as the Mykonos vase. In 1207, like the rest of the Cyclades, Mykonos came under Venetian rule. The Gizi dynasty took the authority of the island and built a Castle for its protection. A century later, Georgios Gizi, the last Venetian ruler, concede the island of Mykonos to Venice. In 1537 Mykonos, with most of the Cycladic islands, came under Turkish domination.

Arheoloski nalazi ukazuju da su prvi naseljenici ostrva Mikonos bili pripadnici neolitskog plemena Kares, i to 3000 p.n.e.! Medjutim istorijski podaci navode da su prvi naseljenici najverovatnije bili Jonjani iz Atine koji su ovde ziveli u 11-om veku p.n.e.! Ovaj narod je na celu sa liderom, poznatijim pod imenom Ipokli, naseljavao terotoriju koja je danasnji glavni grad, Hora. 
Blizina ostrva Delos (svega 2km udaljenog) koji je uveliko bio razvijen, je imala znacajan uticaj i Mikonos postaje clan alijanse Delosa. Zahvaljujuci tome Mikonos dozivljava ekonomski prosperitet iako je samo ostrvo bilo poprilicno siromasno agrikulturom. Losa strana je ta sto je propascu Delosa, i Mikonos zapao u krizu...
