Pausanias states that the Kolonos Hippios is a hill that marks the first point that Oedipus reached in Attica. It was a sacred area with rites devoted to both Poseidon and Athena, as well as a hero shrine sacred to Peirithous and Theseus, Oedipus and Adrastus. Antigonus destroyed the shrine of Poseidon.
