The Krokottas Hyena

The Krokottas Hyena was a legendary hyena who had made its way to the Kythera Island and made its lair in the Skandeia Bay region during the 5th century BCE.

During the Peloponnesian War the hyena was hunted down by the Spartan misthios Kassandra. She took its pelt as proof of her success to Daphnae, the acting leader of the Daughters of Artemis.[1]
