We examine two aspects of Euboea Montes: the geology and origin of the mountain and implications for crustal evolution, and geomorphic evidence for mass movement and implications for crustal stability and rheology.
The second type of mass movement at Euboea Montes is represented by the large 10 x 70 km block (and the smaller adjacent block) that has detached from the southwestern end of the mountain and travelled 3 to 4 km down slope (Figure 1).
Origin of Euboea Montes Slope failure at Euboea is limited to the formation of the debris apron, which probably involved movement of a thin relatively unconsolidated top layer, and the detachment of the two blocks at the southwest end.

That an island of the extent and importance of Euboea should have had no native currency during the period of her greatest colonizing and commercial activity is a proposition hardly to be entertained.

The war over, the cities of Euboea were enrolled among the allies of Athens, and such of them as retained the right of coinage adopted a new and improved method of striking money, and for the most part new types.

The Greek fleet planned to meet the Persians off of Artemisium on Euboea, and had probably been planning a battle for approximately the same date as Thermopylae.

The Greeks began to retreat from Artemisium, heading south along the coast of Euboea, while Themistocles left messages for the Ionian contingents of the Persian fleet, urging them to defect to their fellow Greeks.
