Delos "The Minoan Fountain, referred to in the inscriptions and identified by a relief bearing a dedication to "Minoan Nymphs", is a public well hewn in the rock. It was covered by a square building, open on the south side, which was flanked by a Doric portico. The water level could be reached by the stone steps on the south side. The fountain was constructed in the second half of the 6th century B.C. and remained in use for a very long time, until the late Hellenistic period, when it was finally converted into a house. "
