In around 422 BCE, the Cult of Kosmos kidnapped the real caretaker of Ardos, taking him to their base at the Phaistos Theater to be interrogated. In order to lure Ardos back, the Cult had another man pose as the caretaker. Some time later, the Spartan misthios Kassandra encountered the imposter and immediately knew he was one, having expected an elderly man. Kassandra threatened the man for the location of the real caretaker, after cracking the imposter revealed the caretaker was held at Phaistos Village. Once Kassandra let him go it is unknown whether she killed him or not.
