'Nisyros lies to the north of Telos, being about sixty stadia distant, as many as Cos. It is round, high and rocky, with rocks proper for millstones. This is the cause that there is an abundance of mills among the neighbouring people. It has also a city with the same name and a harbour and hot springs and a temple of Poseidon. It's perimeter is eighty stadia. There are islands nearby that are called Nisyrian. They say that Nisyros is a fragment of Cos, adding the myth that when Poseidon was pursuing one of the Giants, Polybotes, broke off with his trident a piece of Cos and threw it upon him, the thrown rock became the island of Nisyros, having the Giant beneath it. Some say that he lies beneath Cos.' From Strabo's (Historical) Geography. Book 10:5(16).
