Skyropoula (Greek: Σκυροπούλα, English: "Little Skyros") is a Greek island in the Sporades. The islet of Erinia lies directly to the east as well as the main island of Skyros. From 1860 until 2001, it was the private island of the Antoniadis family. This family has a long military and naval tradition; most recently, Admiral Antonis Antoniadis served as Chief of the Hellenic Navy General Staff from 2002-2005. In May 2001, the island became the property of an unidentified Cypriot businessman.[1] As of 2011, it had no resident population.[2]
