Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 58 B3 Zeus Lykaios, T.

On the south peak of Mount Lykaio are a temenos and ash altar dedicated to Zeus; human activity in the area of the altar dates back to the Neolithic period. In a mountain meadow below and to the east of the altar are a stoa, fountain house, seats, stadium, hippodrome, and baths, which served in part for the games of the Lykaia festival. According to Pausanias, the god Pan had a sacred grove within the sanctuary, although this has not been located.
