According to legend, the goddess Athena
bathed in it.
It is reported that members of the German army during the retreat from the area during the Second World War, threw part of the arms and / or their vehicles in the lake.
Local urban legend says that the lake has no bottom. This view is probably based on the depth disproportionate in relation to the surface and / or disturbance to the surface or the water level of the residents observed during the earthquake of Santorini in 1956.
For this reason allegedly is geological relationship between the two positions, but academic research on the matter is not yet known.
