Ancient authors' reports

Rhodes is a diamond shaped island, and it measures 78 km in length and 30 km in width, making it the fourth largest island in Greece, preceded only by Crete, Euboea, and Lesbos. It is part of the volcanic island arc that extends from the Peloponnese through Crete and Karpathos to Asia Minor. Rhodes is only 20 km from the mainland of Asia Minor. The rock-rose is so plentiful and exuberant that Rhodes is often called the "Island of Roses."
