-Your location for Karphi (last redoubt of the Minoan religion) on Crete at ID: 589842, at 35.221713, 25.473288, should be modified to 35.217714, 25.470280. The Aerial Atlas of Ancient Crete, Myers, et al., 1992, p. 116 ff. has a beautiful photo at p. 117 which allows us to get the lat/lon pair unmistakably from Google Earth. (September 20, 2012, eye altitude of 5862 feet).
