The green island of Lesbos is a popular summer resort without being too busy. This is where the 7th century BC poetess Sappho lived, as well as Alcaios, another ancient poet and allegedly Sapphos lover. The philosopher Theophrastus was born here in the 4th century BC, and the poet and Nobel Prize winner Odysseas Elytis also came from Lesbos.-http://www.in2greece.com/english/places/summer/islands/lesbos.htm

It is also the name of its main island. This is in the Aegean Sea near Turkey. The second largest island is Lemnos, to the northwest.-wikipedia.en
