ACOD Sphinx's Lair 1

Overview of the lair

The Ruined Temple was the ruins of an Isu site located on the southern shore of Lake Kopais in Boeotia, Greece which housed the Sphinx, a hybrid creature result of the Isu's Olympos Project.

Within the ruins was a statue of a sphinx standing on a pedestal, and around it were pillars with various pictographs. By night, the pillars lit up, and seemed to flare with unearthly fire.[1]

During the Peloponnesian War, the site was visited by the Spartan misthios Kassandra, who was pursuing one of the artifacts needed to seal Atlantis.[2] There, Kassandra defeated the sphinx by answering its riddles correctly. She then claimed the artifact masquerading as one of the Sphinx's feathers.[3]
