A cavernous grotto on the island of Kos that seems to have served as a place of worship in ancient times. Pan and the Nymphs were venerated there in Archaic Greek times. The grotto's ancient name is unknown.

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.
