It is probably named for the classical Minoan (and, later, Greek) city of Knossos. Fittingly, all the planets in the Knossos system (with the exception of Therum) are named for ancient Minoan cities and monuments. Furthermore, among the greek city states the four systems in the Artemis Tau cluster are named after, Knossos is by far the oldest; predating the other three by several thousand years. This is likely a nod to the fact that the ancient Prothean ruins at the dig site are located in this system.
