Satellite map of Hymettus
Hymettus (/haɪˈmɛtəs/), also Hymettos (/haɪˈmɛtɒs/; Greek: Υμηττός, transliterated Ymīttós, pronounced [imiˈtos]), is a mountain range in the Athens area, East Central Greece. It is also colloquially known as Trellós or Trellóvouno (crazy mountain), a name of uncertain origin. Hymettus is commonly called "Crazy" (or Trelovouni), a name probably derived from the French salutation très long (very long)by foreign visitors. In antiquity there was a sanctuary to Zeus Ombrios (Zeus the Rain God) on the summit with numerous offerings dating especially to the 8th-7th centuries BC; they are on the site of a military base and not currently accessibe.
