    According to Sydney Loch (page 213)and the text above this video this is the cave of Akakios the Younger. He lived in the cave of Maximos, a 14th century hermit, who gave the name to this part of Athos, because he had the custom to set fire to the places where he slept (Kavsokalyvia or Burnt Huts). Akakios died in 1730. He was well known because he perferred to sleep standing. Loch writes: “the horizontal saplings of his bed are still in place”, and are – 50-years later – still to be seen on this video.
