I lived on Crete in 1969 & 1970. A friend and I drove south of Heraklion to the southern coast of the island one day when we had nothing else to do. I remember the road being dirt and gravel for part of the trip. I asked the friend if he remembered where the place was. He remembers a story that may be the clue I need to identify the place. Here is his story:
"I remember a legend which spoke of Crete being attacked by Africans with lions. When the Africans left, one of the lions was late getting on the boats so he sat on the shore and looked out toward Africa. There is a mountain formation which resembles the head of a lion looking toward Africa."
Have any of you heard this story? If so, do you know where this mountain or hill is located? I want to try and find it when we are visiting Crete from 7-15 June.
