In Ios is the tomb of Homer, the most famous poet of antiquity and creator of the epic works Iliad and Odyssey. According to tradition, Homer's mother came from Ios. That is why the poet died on the island. Of course, there is another version according to which Homer did not solve the riddle that the locals put to him, so they killed them. In Plakoto, on the north side of the island, on top of the hill is said to be the poet's tomb.
