The Abaton

The Abaton was a building located within the Sanctuary of Asklepios in Argolis, Greece.

Function

History

During the Peloponnesian War, the Spartan misthios Kassandra visited the place while looking for her mother.[2]

Trivia

  • The name of the building comes from Greek word ἄβατον (ábaton), denoting 'sacred enclosure'.
