Entrance to the tomb

The Tomb of Orpheus was a cave allegedly housing the head and lyre of the legendary musician and poet, Orpheus, located in the southern region of Lesbos, Greece.[1]

During the Peloponnesian War, the tomb was explored by the the Spartan misthios Kassandra, who deciphered an ancient stele within.[2]


  • The location is based on the legend that after his death, Orpheus' head floated down the river Hebrus. The people of the ancient polis Antissa took the head and entombed it in a cave, which became the home of the oracle of Orpheus.
