In his very interesting article on "The I. mesopotamica Problem" in the
July, 1998 AIS Bulletin (pp. 29-33), Ben Hager states that " There is now
only one bearded iris in Greece proper: I. attica, a dwarf that grows on
the Sunion peninsula". 

The Sunion peninsula forms the southern tip of Attica, the region of Greece
in which Athens is located. The ruins of a famous temple of Poseidon, the
ancient Greek sea god, are located there. It is about 25 miles southeast of
Athens. Happy hunting!
