Cool PLS help me ID this butterfly

I've checked several sites, looked at hundreds of photographs and still haven't found a match for this butterfly seen on a Greek island village in the Eastern Aegean. Could anyone help? Copper brown, single spot on forewing, 2 on hindwing.

Hi Alicia

There's actually a dedicated ID forum for Butterflies and Moths, so I moved your post into it and subscribed you to the thread so you can find it easily.
