Pythagorio, Samos and Mount Mykale at My Favourite Planet

The 19th century Castle of Logothetis, west of Pythagorio harbour Pythagorio, Samos.

A hydrofoil speeds into the harbour from the south. In the background, just a few kilometres away,
rises Samsun Daği, known in ancient times as Mount Mykale (Greek, Μυκάλη), on the west coast
of Turkey. The north slope of this mountain was the location of ancient Panionion (Greek, Πανιώνιον),
a sanctuary dedicated to Poseidon Helikonios and the meeting place of the Ionian League,
the confederation of 12 Greek cities of Ionia which included Samos. On the other side of Mykale
are the ruins of the ancient Ionian city of Priene.

See gallery page 29 and Ionian Spring, a three-part photo essay about Ionia at The Cheshire Cat Blog.
