It was here also on this island after the death of Troy that Odysseus moored his ships - came upon a one-eyed Cyclops-eater and then miraculously escaped (which paved the way for the story that the tribes of the Black Sea became known as eyed arymaspy, ) 

A small thin spit of shells that separates the lagoon from the sea is called  ' Achilles Running'  so named as legend has it ' where and when Artemis sprinkled sand before the feet of the Virgin and thusAchilles fled by jumping into the sea'.
