Synopsis

Minos, king of the island of Crete, has a labyrinth in his palace in which he keeps the Minotaur, a monster – half man and half bull – which feeds on human flesh. To press home a military victory over Athens, Minos decrees that the Athenians should provide a regular supply of their young people to be sacrificed to the monster. The Athenian hero Theseus joins one of these shiploads, slays the Minotaur, and sails home with the Athenian youths.

The traditional story is simplified: there is nothing about the parentage of the Minotaur or the help given to Theseus by the king’s daughter, Ariadne; the Athenians find their way out of the maze with the assistance of Daedalus, its architect, who escapes with them rather than, as in the myth, by an aerial route.
