It was located in the Sanctuary of Demeter at Knidos which was a Greek island and city in modern-day Turkey. The sanctuary was built at around the same time as the re-founding of the city, circa 350 B.C.E. Demeter is the Greek goddess of agriculture and fertility, and is also associated with the Underworld.
