The two small with lush greenery islands at the entrance of the bay of Mourtos – named after the pirate who had made it his base of operations – are considered, according to tradition, as the Syvota islands which are mentioned by the historian of the Peloponnisian war, Thucydides, in connection with the naval battle of 433 B.C. between the Korinthians and the Kerkyraioi, although more recent research considers that they are in a more northern location.
