Map of the Dikteon Cave

This map shows the interior of the Dikteon Cave with its various chambers and the visitors’ route.

The cave is on two levels, the upper (Z), which is not so interesting, and the lower, which is divided into five chambers.

The stalactite known as the “Mantle of Zeus” is in chamber D, while Zeus is supposed to have been born on the spot where the lake is today.
