- "They say Zeus grew up in these caves."
- ― Kassandra, 429 BCE[src]
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.
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. At the same time, she also recovered an Ainigmata Ostraka in the shrine within.
- In the center of the shrine, there's an inactive platform that resembles those seen in the vaults of Assassin's Creed: Origins and also at the Gateway to the Lost City.
