During the 5th century BCE, the island was home to the Daughters of Artemis, a cult who worshipped the Greek goddess of the hunt, Artemis. The Spartan misthios Kassandra visited the island during the Peloponnesian War.[1]

In 1510, during his voyage to Masyaf the Mentor of the Italian Brotherhood of Assassins Ezio Auditore da Firenze had to stop off at the island of Chios after his ship ran into a storm.[2]
