THE CAVE LAKE OF MELISSANI (PAN WORSHIP)

The cave lake of Melissani.

An enchanting cave in Kefalonia (Western Greece), located at Karavomilo near Sami. In antiquity the lake was a place of worship for the god Pan and the nymph Melissanthi. According to story, Melissanthi drowned herself in the lake over her unrequited love of Pan. There is also a shrine dedicated to Pan, where the findings included a clay figure of Pan, a plate depicting dancing nymphs, a clay tablet depicting a procession of nymphs and a small tablet with a relief carving of a female figure. These findings are now on display at Argostoli Archaeological Museum.
