Warning: don’t mess with the fairer sex!

The following is a reblog of an article entitled, Warning: don’t mess with the fairer sex!” posted by Luciana Cavallaro on March 12, 2018. It is a fascinating overview of the unique history of Island of Hephaistos/Hephaestus, today known as Limnos/Lemnos. There are tales that a matriarchal society inhabited the island and archaeologists have found evidence on the island of a possible connection to the Amazons from Scythia. Fascinating read!

Our next destination has a unique history, and perhaps the earliest forerunner of women’s liberation. Then again, what happened may raise a few brows and possibly considered extreme as to the outcome. We are off to the Island of Hephaistos/Hephaestus, today known as Limnos/Lemnos. It is one of the northern islands of Greece and not far from the Hellespont, the Dardenelles in Turkey, the famous trade route between the west and east, and also where Troy was situated.
