Orchomenos

Orchomenos, also called the City of Orchomenos, was an ancient polis located within the Lake Kopais region of Boeotia, Greece.

History

In antiquity, Orchomenos served as the capital of the legendary Minyans which formed a district of Boeotia. The Greek gods Zeus and Dionysos were widely worshipped there, with the former regarded as the city's protector. Its most famous sanctuary, however, was dedicated to a group of deities known as the Charites.[1]

During the Peloponnesian War, the city was visited by the Spartan misthios Kassandra.[2]
