"They say Zeus grew up in these caves."
― Kassandra, 429 BCE[src]
Naxos-CaveofMtZas

The exterior of the Cave of Mt.Zas

The Cave of Mt. Zas was a cavern located below Mount Zas on the Greek island of Naxos.

The cave had three entrances: one near the Fort of the Aloades, one opening to the bay, and one near the temple of Demeter. In Greek mythology, the cave was one of the many places on Naxos Island that was said to have been important in the youth of the god Zeus.[1]

The shrine within the depths of the cave had in addition to a statue of the god Zeus, also statues of lions and curious architecture.[2]

History

In 429 BCE, the cave was used by the Cult of Kosmos as a base of operations in preparation for an assassination attack on Myrrine, the obligarch of Naxos. After learning of this possible attack, Aspasia, persuading Myrrine, sent the Spartan misthios Kassandra to investigate the cave and eliminate the assassins.[3] At the same time, she also recovered an Ainigmata Ostraka in the shrine within.[4]
