View on Petasos Cape from the castle of Myrina. This place is the origin of the expression "Lemnian deeds". According to a Hellenic legend, the women of Lemnos were all deserted by their husbands for Thracian women, and in revenge they murdered every man on the island throwing them from this cape. From this barbarous act, the expression Lemnian deeds became proverbial among the Hellenes. Lemnian deeds is a term that refers to the cruel slaughter of someone as revenge.
