On this coast the sea washed up many thousands years ago the head of Orpheas after the dismemberment of the women in Thrace, perhaps a message for poets tha despise women through their lyrics. Also Arion came from Mithimna, a lyric poet and musician. It was said that a dolphin listened him play his harp and came to rescue him from the wrath of the sea.
