Pythagorio (or Pythagoreion or Pythagorion) was an important port of Samos in antiquity.

It has a history of six thousand years, and in the peak of its development in the 6th century BC, during the rule of Polykrates, it became the first artificial seaport in the Mediteranean.

Formerly known as Tigani, it was renamed Pythagoreion in 1955, to honor the most famous native son of Samos, Pythagoras, the great mathematician of antiquity.
