The name Knossos survives from ancient Greek references to the major city of Crete.

The identification of Knossos with the Bronze Age site is supported by tradition and by the Roman coins that were scattered over the

fields surrounding the pre-excavation site, then a large mound named Kephala Hill, elevation 85 m (279 ft) from current sea level.
