Antimilos (formerly Antimelos, Greek Αντίμηλος) is a Greek island in the Cyclades, 13 miles (20 km) northwest of Milos. Administratively, it is part of the municipality of Milos. Antimilos is an uninhabited mass of trachyte (671 m height), often called Erimomilos (Desert Milos). It is a volcanic island and the crater is still obvious. Ancient inhabitants transformed the crater to an open rain tank. On the island lives a rare variation of the common goat called Capra aegagrus pictus. It is similar but not the same with the Cretan goat known as "kri-kri" (Capra aegagrus creticus).
