Stymphalos and Orchomenos

Located high in the Arkadian mountains in Corinthia, Stymphalos was renowned in ancient times as the site of one of the Labours of Heracles, the slaying of the Stymphalian birds.  Orchomenos in Boiotia is most famous for the tholos tomb called the Tomb of Minyas, excavated by Heinrich Schliemann in the 1880s, and for a palace of the Mycenaean period.
