Kalymnos has been inhabited since the Neolithic Age.

Homer mentions Kalymnos as Kalydna and its participation with 30 ships in the Trojan war.

Later, it is occupied by the king Mausolus of Halicarnassus, it becomes released, gets occupied by the Romans, Turks, Venetians, again by the Turks and in 1912 it is granted to the Italians. In 1947, it gets incorporated in the Greek state.
