Lemnos is an island in the Aegean Sea, located between Lesbos to the northeast and Skyros to the southwest. Together with Thasos, it formed the Hephaistos Islands.

At some point during the 420s BCE, the Spartan misthios Kassandra explored the island, managing to hunt down a member of the Cult of Kosmos.[1]


The island of Lemnos comprised two regions:


  • In Greek mythology, the island of Lemnos was where the god of fire Hephaistos fell when he was hurled from Mount Olympus. He was cared for there by Thetis, the oceanid and mother of the hero Achilles. It was said that his forge was located on the island.  
    • Another legend states that when Jason and the Argonauts arrived, all the island was inhabited by women, ruled by Hypsipyle. The Argonauts were content to stay on the island, but Herakles was so disgusted by the way his companions were acting, that he persuaded them to leave.
