Agios Georgios or San Giorgio (Greek: Άγιος Γεώργιος) is a Greek uninhabited island in the entry of Saronic Gulf. It is the largest uninhabited island of the Saronic Islands with an area of 4.3 km2.[1] In antiquity the island was named Velvina (Belbina) and it is mentioned by Herodotus in a dialogue between Themistocles and his political opponent Timodemos from Afidnes.[2] The island belongs to Lavreotiki municipality. The last years there are plans about a construction of wind power park on the island.[1]
