Background InformationEdit

Kirra or Cirrha (Greek: Κίρρα) is a village in Phocis, Central Greece. It is part of the municipal unit of Itea, to which it is adjacent. Kirra is the point where the Pleistos river, starting at the Castalian Spring near Delphi, meets the Gulf of Corinth.

In Mythology...

  • Cirrha (Kirra) was a nymph from whom the town of Cirrha in Phocis was believed to have derived its name.
  • Kirra is another name for the nymph Adrasteia. At Cirrha, the port that served Delphi, Pausanias noted "a temple of Apollo, Artemis and Leto, with very large images of Attica workmanship. Adrasteia has been set up by the Cirrhaeans in the same place, but she is not so large as the other images. She was sometimes called "/Nemesis_(mythology)", probably meaning "one from whom there is no escape": her epithet Erinys ("implacable") is specially applied to Demeter and the Phrygian mother goddess, Cybele.
