Modern Description: 4.5 km northwest from Mármaro is Nagos – whose name is a corruption of naos, ‘a temple', the 4th century BC remains of which were found during excavations (now covered) in the vicinity of the spring, to the west side of the village. The steep, densely treed slope of the mountain dropping down to the sea, and run through by the waterfalls of a torrent, marks a dramatic change in landscape, announcing what is to come to the west of here.
