Kos, by Chris and Christa Mee is an 87 page guide with plans and black and white photographs of the Dodecanese island of Kos. Hippocrates, the "father of medicine" was born on Kos, and the island was famous in antiquity for its Asklepeion, sanctuary of Asklepios, the god of medicine. The island participated fully in Greek life in the classical, Hellenisitic, Roman, early Christian, and Byzantine periods. Later it was occupied by the Knights of St. John, the Ottomans, and the Italians, becoming a part of Greece only in 1947. All these periods have left their marks on the island, which the authors clearly explain.
87 pages, with maps, plans, black and white photographs, paperback.
