Short historical retrospection

Ancient Epoque (Age)
Starting from its name, we can see that it has been differentiated with the passing of time. We come across it by the following names” Iperia, Patayi or Platayi, Pagali, Psichia, Karkisia. As the years went by, the name Amorgos changed and therefore the island is also known as Amolgos, Amoulgos, Amourgos, Amourgia and Amorgia.
The word Amoulgos is found in the 5th century A.D, when in 431, under the rule of Patriarch Menas in Constantinople, a doctrine was signed, according to which the ruler of the island was Theodore, the bishop of Paros, Sifnos and Amoulgos.
