Argos was a major ancient Greek city in the region named after it, the Argolid. Argos is located on the coast and situated on the Peloponnese. In Homer, “Argives” was used as a general term to refer to all Greeks. The modern city of Argos features an archaeological museum that is well worth visiting.
The story of the Argive youths Cleobis and Biton gives an idea of how different the ancient Greek world view was from our own.
