Arcadia

Due to its remote, mountainous character, Arcadia has always been a refuge. The birth-place of Zeus is Mount Lycaeum in Arcadia. Lycaon, a cannibalistic Pelasgian king, was transformed into a werewolf by Zeus. Lycaon's daughter was Callisto. It was also said to have been the birthplace of Zeus' son, Hermes.

Arcadia remains a rustic, secluded area, and its inhabitants are primitive herdsmen leading simple pastoral lives.
