With 2,135 km², the third largest island Greece (neugrch. Mytilini) in the Aegean, 600 BC, the poet Sappho (after whom Sapphism is called the same-sex love among women) lived on this island at the same time as Alcaeus, from whom many drinking songs and the most famous saying about wine originate: In vino veritas (in the wine is truth). Charaxos - the brother of Sappho - sailed as a merchant with a shipload of wine to Naukratis in Egypt. Also the philosopher and viticulture botanist Theophrastus (370-287 BC) was born here. The island of Lesbos is best known for its olives with over 13 million olive trees. Wine is also produced, but there are none POP classified appellations.
