Zakynthos, the third largest of the Ionian Islands, has a population of about 42,000. The island is named after Zacynthus, son of a legendary Arcadian chief Dardanus. The name, like all similar names ending in -nthos, is pre-Mycenaean or Pelasgian in origin. The Mild climate and the plentiful winter rainfall makes the island dense in vegetation. The biggest products here are olive oil, currants, grapes, and citrus fruit.
