On the 9th January 2006: 
A strong earthquake struck southern Greece, including the capital, Athens. 
The  quake, was 70km underwater and measured 6.9 magnitude
The quake shook buildings in the capital of Athens and was felt as far away as northern Greece, Jordan and Egypt. 

It struck at 1134 GMT and lasted for several seconds. 
The quake's epicentre was located about 200km (125 miles) south of Athens, near the island of Kythira, the Athens Geodynamic Institute said. 
It must be noted that there was no loss of life, but extensive damage was caused at Mitata
including the Church bell towers and some houses. Mitata also lost a few metres of the beautiful town square (platia), which is considered to be "The Balcony of Kythera"
