DIMITRA (Village) KONTOVAZENA
The sanctuary of Eleusinian Demeter is on the borders of Thelpusa. In it are images, each no less than seven feet high, of Demeter, her daughter, and Dionysus, all alike of stone (Paus. 8,25,3). The village Divritsa changed its name to Dimitra when the ancient sanctuary of Demeter Eleusinian was brought to light (Ekd. Athinon, Pausaniou Periegissis, vol. 4, p. 278, note of the left column).
KAOS (Ancient city) KONTOVAZENA
In the Thelpusian territory is a river called Arsen (Male). Cross this and go on for about twenty-five stades, when you will arrive at the ruins of the village Caus, with a sanctuary of Causian Asclepius, built on the road.
