Entrance to the cave

The Cave of Pan was a natural grotto within Marathon Beach region of Attika, Greece. One of the caves dedicated to the Greek god of wilderness, Pan, the cave entrance were surrounded by boulders that resembled a herd of goats, seemingly referencing Pan's goat-like features.

During the Peloponnesian War, the misthios Kassandra visited the cave, at the request of the pirate queen Xenia in search of relics related to the Greek gods Apollo and Pan. Kassandra entered the cave, eliminating the Followers of Ares who occupied it and claimed their treasures, including a flute which had allegedly belonged to Pan.[1]
