The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: H. Konstantinos, on Imbros

This place should not be confused with the Sanctuary of the Great Gods on the nearby island of Samothrace.

The sanctuary retaining wall was originally misidentified by Fredrich as part of a dam or other structure for collecting water for the ancient city of Imbros.
