Cave of Filoktitis

Near the sanctuary of Kavers, there is the only cave of Filoktitis. According to the legend, the Achaeans, going to Troy, stopped on the island and left Philoktitis, who had been bitten by the snake of the Temple of God Chryssa, and his foot made an unbearable odor.

They came back to him after some years and went to Troy because, according to the clerics of the Hellen, only with his weapons (the arrows of Hercules) could understand it. He is the hero who inspired our three tragic poets - the tragedy "Philoctetes", Sophocles, has survived to this day.
