'In those times, the mainland across the islands suffered great misfortunes because of the cataclysm. The deluge was the cause of destruction of the agricultural produce and there was a lack of the necessities of life, while there was pestilence in the cities as a result of the degradation of the air. On the contrary, the islands were exposed to clean breezes which provided the inhabitants with healthy air and caused good harvests, and they were filled with greater and greater abundance which was the foundation of happy living for the inhabitants. Consequently, they were called Islands of the Blessed, the abundance of the goods being the reason for the name.' From Diodorus' of Sicily Library of History. Book 5:82 (1-3).
