The springs of Ladon

Until the last century there was a fable at Lycuria about the spring of Ladon and the lake of Pheneos. The story went like this; two ghosts were haunting the lake of Pheneos, the one living near Gioza (Mati) and the other near Lycuria. One day they had a fight near Lycuria. One of them went into the ground and, going through the mountain, reached the lake. This way, it opened the sink hole of Gioza and the lake was emptied of its water (Ekd. Athinon, Pausaniou Periegissis, vol. 4, p. 252, note 1).
