Honey from Hymettus: Platonic Philosophy in the Cave of Pan?
The Cave of Vari, dedicated to Pan, the Nymphs and Apollo in classical times, has been associated with Plato’s biography already in the early accounts of his life. It seems to have attracted the interest of the later Athenian Neoplatonists of the fourth century AD, and possibly to have been used by them for the performance of various ceremonies of cosmic symbolism, until its final abandonment under the impact of triumphant Christianity.
