ACOD Phaistos Disk

The Phaistos Disk

The Phaistos Disk was an Isu artifact which was used to gain access to the Labyrinth of Lost Souls under Knossos Palace, housing the Minotaur.


Housed in the palace in Phaistos Village,[1] the disk was taken and used by the Messaran Nikios to enter the Minotaur's labyrinth along with other men, looking for the rumoured treasures and riches within.[2] Afterwards, the disk was looked after by the caretaker of Nikios' son, Ardos, in their home.[3]

During the Peloponnesian War, Ardos stole the disk from his caretaker and fled. Later, he gave the disk to the Spartan misthios Kassandra, who used it to reopen the vault.[4]

Behind the scenes

The Phaistos Disk was featured in one of Abstergo Entertainment's Crypto-History files, noting its similarity to the Memory Seals.

Like the other 'keys' to the Olympos Project lairs in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, the Phaistos Disk bears a resemblance to its real life counterpart. However, instead of the symbols being arranged in a spiral, the version in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey has them in two distinct wheels, around a center with a stylized icon of a bull's head.
