Cave Description: Orpheas is the biggest cave in a complex of nine other small caves and cavities. The largest dimensions of the cave is 300 x 30 m. It is located near the Gorge of the River Angitis.
Research Chronicles and Data: The excavations in this cave are on-going. So far an area of 16 square metres has been excavated to reveal 12 post-holes. This limits the theory that this is a domestic settlement.
Cave Uses: Agropastoral (A.a) - The smaller cavities and caves were probably just used as animal pens due to their size and minimum security. Due to the size, this cave would make a good storage location, however the post holes uncovered reveal an enclosure too small for domestic living but may suggest mortuary practices.
