Taenarum  (TEE-nuh-rum)

Peninsula in southern Greece where there was a cave through which access to the Underworld was possible. This was the portal chosen by Theseus and his companion Peirithous on their ill-fated attempt to abduct Hades' queen Persephone from the kingdom of the dead.
This imaginary crossroads might have led to Taenarum. (zoom)
