There is an old legend that a wave of sea-water rises up in the sanctuary. A like story is told by the Athenians about the wave on the Acropolis, and by the Carians living in Mylasa
about the sanctuary of the god called in the native tongue Osogoa. But the sea at Phalerum is about twenty stades distant from Athens
, and the port of Mylasa
is eighty stades from the city. But at Mantineia
the sea rises after a very long distance, and quite plainly through the divine will.
