The Temple of Zeus Chthonios was an ancient Greek temple dedicated to the god Zeus, located atop the hills of Kranioi in Kephallonia. By the 5th century BCE, naught remained of the temple but ruins, occupied by a pack of wolves.
- The epithet is the Greek word χθόνιος (khthónios), which means 'underground, subterranean'. English has borrowed the term as chthonian and chthonic, especially in reference to gods and spirits related to the Greek underworld.
