Mythology
One of the most renowned mythological figures of Chios is Orion. Orion, the giant son of Poseidon and Evriali, Minoa's daughter, was a hunter. Orion fell in love with the daughter of Oenopion, Meropi. Oenopion asked Orion to destroy all the wild beasts of Chios in order for him to give him his daughter.
