When climbing the slopes of Cithaeron, the sacred to Dionysus mountain, you won’t only hear laughters and songs or encounter enchanting brides and vivid bacchants. A lot of drama unfolded here. After killιng his father, the envious and greedy Cithaeron mythical king of Platea, tried to eliminate his easygoing and gentle brother Helikon by throwing him of a cliff, killing himself also during the fight. It was Gods decision to transform the two brothers to mountains, one named Helikon home of the Muses, the other Cithaeron lair for the Erinyes the female chthonic deities of vengeance. It is on the side of that same mountain that Oedipus, as a baby, was abandoned to die in Sophocles titular tragedy and scene of the decisive battle of Platea during the 2nd Persian war.
