Naxos.About the place : The very early stages of human habitation on Naxos are lost in the mists of myth. In this island Zeus, Apollo, Dionysus, and Ariadne, Demeter and Artemis were worshiped above all. Zeus, father of all gods, was born in Crete but was brought up in Naxos. Dionysus was born in Naxos and the Nymphs Filia, Kleide and Koronis hiding him in the cave of Koronos.
Arhaeological remains prove the existence of a developed society from as early as the 4th millenium BC. Our knowledge of this period depends mainly on the arhaeological findings in Grota, Kastraki and Panormos. In Naxos have also been unearthed some of the famous Cycladic statuettes.
