A cyclop in cyclop’s cave

I had an opportunity to visit Cyprus this week, and, of course, there were also some caves. The Cyclop's Cave is on the south-east end of the island, a nice 23 m x 24 m cave with a sand floor and a thin rock cover above. Right on the beach, with great sunset views. But this is also likely not the "real" Cyclop's cave from the historic tales, that is in Greece.

I also managed to make a lidar scan and produce a basic map using my "Cave Outliner" software. A picture of the map is below, but for the high-res PDF version use this link. Or if you want to rotate the 3D model on your screen, click here.
