Lindos was originally founded by the Dorians(however myths say different), who arrived on the island in about 10th BC. By the 8th century, it was a major trading and shipping center, which started to decline after the foundation of the city of Rhodes. In its prime, along with the other two major cities on the island, Kamiros and Ialysos, they contributed to the fleet of 1000 ships that went to fight in the Battle of Troy.
