Sifnos Mythology
According to myth, Sifnos was the island of Apollon, the Ancient Greek god of light, healing and poetry who endowed the island with its many natural beauties and riches. As a sign of gratitude, the citizens would offer a golden egg to Apollon every year. When the production of gold was no longer adequate, Apollon was offered a gold-plated rock. This small gesture of course infuriated Apollon who in return sent over the tyrant Polykratis to remove all natural resources and precious metals from the island before flooding the goldmines himself leaving the island bare; hence ‘sifnos’.
