Background image of page 6
Mycenaean Map Minos- legendary king of Crete who was the son of Zeus and Europa, he later sought vengeance for his son, Androgeos by demanding a sacrifice of seven Athenian men women to the Minotaur. The Bull of Heaven- a snow white bull sent from Poseidon as a sign that Minos should rule Crete, rather than his two brothers. It was supposed to be sacrificed to Poseidon, but Minos thought it was so beautiful that he had to keep it. Poseidon then caused Pasiphae to fall in love with the bull. She mated with it by using a wooden cow built by Daedalus; the offspring was the Minotaur. Poseidon- God of the sea, who Minos prayed to in order to rule Crete.
