Salamis (Greek: Σαλαμίνα Salamína, Ancient: Σαλαμίς Salamís), formerly known as Koullouri (Arvanitika: Κȣλλȣρι)[1] is the largest Greek island in the Saronic Gulf, about 1 nautical mile (2 km) off-coast from Piraeus and about 16 km west of Athens. The chief city, Salamis or Salamina, lies in the west-facing core of the crescent on Salamis Bay, which opens into the Saronic Gulf. The island's main port, Paloukia, in size second only to Piraeus, is on the eastern side. The island's population prior to recent development was majority-Arvanite.[1]
