Kea is the location of a Bronze Age settlement at the site now called Ayia Irini, which reached its height in the Late Minoan and Early Mycenaean eras ( BC).. In the Archaic period, the island was divided between four city-states (): Ioulis, Karthaia, Poieessa and Koressos.. During the classical period, Kea (Ceos) was the home of Simonides and of his nephew Bacchylides, both ancient. Mosen has now released a book, Ajax the Kea Dog, which details their adventures and highlights the plight of the species. Kea numbers are thought to be about , but the broad range of the bird and challenging terrain it inhabits make it difficult to get accurate figures. Mosen says ongoing predator control is the only way the birds will be.
