Yes, there are fault lines in the area and these are pretty frequent.

The one on 10th June was 5.8 I think.

Most Greek isles receive dozens of minor quakes every year, we have experienced quakes on Crete, Rhodes and Kos over the years, a 5.1 quake is nothing to worry about, at worst, you might hear the glasses chinking at the bar.

"shed any light on if these are common occurences throughout the year"

As GB says there are many little quakes every day, If you are interested you can see here just how common they are.

Anything less than a 6 should not be a problem, anything less than a 4.5 you will probably not even hear the glasses rattle.
