The Nymphs had a cult in the deme of Anaphlystos too, which was situated a little south of Lower Lamptrai (Fig. 1). 32 In this instance there are no epigraphic documents attesting that the place was sacred to these goddesses. However, caves are favorite places for the cult of the Nymphs, which are also closely linked to springs and water. 33 These pottery findings also date the cultic use of the cave during the archaic and classical periods. A dedication to Hermes is inscribed on a marble base, which was reused as a seat in front of the chapel of Agios Giorgos at Anavysso:34 Ἑρμῆι μν⟨η⟩μεῖον Λυσάνδρο.
