Book VIII *Scylla, Nisus, Minos When Minos attacked Nisus in his city of Alcathous, he laid it under a siege. Nisus’ daughter Scylla would go up to a tower and look upon Minos with eyes of love. She decided that she would take her father’s last reaming lock and give it to Minos as a sign of her love, it also meant that her city surrendered. Minos accepted the lock but refused Scylla herself. Having “concurred” the city he left her on the shores. She raced after him and was transformed into a Ciris(a type of bird). But before she was transformed she mocked Minos with the knowledge that his wife had a monstrous child with a bull. *Theseus and Ariadne The Minotaur conceived by Minos’ wife’s unholy union, was fed Athenian youths till Theseus killed him. However Minos’ daughter Ariadne was the one who helped Theseus and loved him too, but on the way back to Athens he left her alone on the shore. Daedalus and Icarus; Daedalus vs Perdix
