Popular saying: "Beware of the marmanga's bite".
According to Greek folklore, marmanga is a kind of poisonous spider that devours its victims without leaving any traces of them afterwards. In the area of Velina, as the legend goes, the victims of this spider are treated in the following way: a hole is opened in the ground and the person who has been bitten by the spider enters it. This hole is covered with manure and the people participating begin a dance all around the hole that is considered to be healing for the victim. This tradition seems to be related to the tradition of the tarantella dance from the south of Italy, that is also meant to heal those bitten by the tarantella.
