External links[edit]

Since there is no reasons stated on talk page for inclusion of foreign language links, I've gone ahead and removed two of them, and changed third to point to English version. Foreign language links should not be included unless there is significant reason otherwise, and those reasons should be discussed here on talk page. I have also removed coordinates since one set of coordinates are already present in infobox. And besides these other ones are too precise for article about the entire island. Third, I've removed Mapquest link. If somebody wants Mapquest for this island he can click on the coordinates in infobox where he will be given the option of using mapquest.

Contributions on behalf of Dr. N. Epitropou, Geologist.[edit]

I have added a Geology and a Mining section to the article, using a text prepared and allowed for use by Dr. N. Epitropou, Geologist at the Greek Geological Institute, the I.G.M.E.. For clarifications, Dr. N. Epitropou can be contacted at the following address: igmexan@otenet.gr with the indication on the subject line "To Dr. N. Epitropou". EpiVictor 13:26, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

Turkish and Bulgarian names should not be used in the English version since Greek Goverment does not recognise the use of these languages and are not used anywhere. Use Bulgarian and Turkish versions of wiki. There are no minorities in the Island of Bulgarians and Turkish. Attacks of Slavic Macedonians, Turks, Bulgarians is rather irritating, and can be consired only as spam. There are internationals treaties that the island belongs to modern Greece. Thats the situation. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kavaliotaki (talkcontribs) 12:12, August 22, 2007 (UTC).

The Turkish and Bulgarian names are referring to the history that at one point or another, the city was under foreign control and had a non-Greek name. That's also not questioning the ownership of the island. It's a Greek islandand there is no need to go around and removing it. El Greco (talk · contribs) 13:20, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
Listen to El Greco man, I'm Greek myself and never have I heard of any sovereignity issues regarding Thasos. If there are indeed historic names for the island, they should be mentioned in the article, period. Compare with Instabul for example: it has Greek, Turkish, Slavic and even Viking names.

Date of the colony[edit]

Does anyone know where the current date of the colonization—"either 720 or 708 BC"—is coming from? I'm used to the first half of the 7th century as the accepted dating.  davidiad.: 21:59, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

They seem to be drawn from Xanthus of Lydia (via Clement of Alexandria) and Dionysus (of Halicarnassus?). One coincides with the first year of the 15th Olympiad, the other with the 18th Olympiad. What you're used to - "first half of the 7th century" - is almost certainly more sound and scholarly than either date. Sadly, I've worked out none of this for myself. It comes from A. J. Graham, "The Foundation of Thasos", The Annual of the British School at Athens, Vol. 73, (1978), pp. 61-98 (available through JSTOR). Haploidavey (talk) 22:33, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
You're a prince! (And I'm lazy.)  davidiad.: 23:57, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
Prince nonetheless.  davidiad.: 00:52, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
