connecting flight in athens

We need to go from Sanatori to Athens to Rome. I already have the flight to Rome that departs Athens at 2:00 with Alitalia. I know it does not make sense but we are making some changes to itinerary and already had Alitalia booked. How much time do I need to leave between arriving to Athens airport from Santorini to board this flight in time?

There is Aegean Flight that leaves Sanatori at 11:15am, arrives Athens at 11:55
or
There is a Aegean Flight that leaves Sanatori at 10:05, arrives at 10:50

Prefer the later flight at 11:15am but not sure if we need to go thru security in Athens or if we will be able to directly go to next flight,

thoughts?

It's a relatively small difference. And Athens is a relatively small airport. But I'd choose the earlier departure, to be on the safer side. Are you planning to pack lightly and have you checked each airline's carry-on limits?
