Temenos of Palamedes

The shrine of Palamedes, mentioned by ancient writers as existing at a town called Polymedium, has been discovered by J. T. Clarke on a site hitherto unvisited by any modern traveller, between Assus and Cape Lectum. It Droves to have been a sacred enclosure (femenos) on the acropolis of the town; the statue of Palamedes stood on a rock at the middle of its southern edge. (Encyclopedia Brittanica)
