Description Chios, or Khios, Island, Greece Located in the eastern Aegean Sea just off the coast of western Turkey, the Greek island of Chios can be seen in this near-nadir view. Chios Island is 30 miles (48 km) long and 8 to 15 miles (13 to 24 km) wide and covers an area of 350 sq. miles (905 sq. km). The island is hilly, scenic, and fertile with a good climate. Chios produces olives, figs, and mastic and has marble quarries, lignite deposits, and sulfur springs. Chios is noted in antiquity for its claims as Homer's birthplace and for its school of epic poets, the Homeridae. The land visible at the right center and top right is part of the country of Turkey.
