During the fifth century B.C., Archedemos from Thera, describing himself as "caught by the nymphs," occupied the cave in Vari, in Attica, carving reliefs and inscriptions on its walls. The cave was used from the Archaic period and reused in the Christian era. An American team of archaeologists excavated in the early 20th century, and votive tablets found there are now in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.
