the numerous engravings found in the cave, we can spot one
from the 7th century B.C Parian poet Arhilohou,
and until the past century, there still was an engraving
from officers of the Great Alexander, that were hiding inside
the cave, after an unsuccessful conspiracy against him.
Also there is an engraving from Othon, the first appointed
king of Greece, who visited the cave at 1840, with Amalia
and their escorts. Unfortunately during the Russian occupation,
(from 1770 to 1774), Russian officers cut many stalactites,
and sent them to the Ermitaz museum of St. Petersburg. During
the 2nd world war, the cave suffered various catastrophes
from the Italian soldiers.
